An excellent performance from Genevieve Bujold is the highlight of this filmed play but the modern adaptation of the classic story is clunky. Fritz Weaver, Aline MacMahon and James Naughton also are fine but Bujold dominates here.
Badly dated TV production from the early 70s. Not the original tragedy by Sophocles but a mid century rewrite by Jean Anouilh that positions the original struggle between Antigone and Creon in terms of French existentialism. Well worth watching, if you can disregard the low rent 70s vibe.
