Not Reccommended
6 April 2018 | by morganmarrs-46106See all my reviews

This movie is a rendition of Antigone, in which is directed by Don Taylor. I believe it was a bad performance of the original play. The director made changes to the play in which causes the movie to be boring and loses the attention of the audience. I feel as if they aren't trying to gain attention from viewers in this play. The scene never changes, therefore; you are stuck watching the same plain screen the whole movie. The movie does however, follow the plot of the play just not the details. The characters dialogue wasn't the best just because they were over dramatic with their emotions compared to the reading. The attended audience is maybe people who watch older movies. I would definitely not recommend this movie to anyone.
