What we love about this film

Antigone proves that some stories and sentiments will always be timeless - and this one, about Antigone, embroiled in a civil war of tragedy and loss, is very effectively brought into the modern day justice system in Montreal. Helmed by great, modern direction by Sophie Deraspe and an amazing central performance by newcomer Nahéma Ricci, Antigone is one to watch.
