  • Deraspe earns kudos for making a 2,500-year-old play feel vital, contemporary and cinematic.

    December 16, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "Antigone" views the plight of desperate immigrants through the lens of Greek tragedy, wringing compelling drama out of a situation that too often resembles catastrophe in the real world.

    December 5, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Philosophically compelling and emotionally devastating, Deraspe crafts a unique and contemporary cinematic experience that resonates deeply.

    November 8, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A contemporary spin on the Greek tragedy that feels refreshingly liberated by the spirit of Sophocles' original material, rather than slavishly devoted to its letter.

  • Coming from the world of documentary, Antigone is an astonishing narrative feature debut for Deraspe, as well as a showcase for its young star's talents. Ricci conveys noble defiance in the face of injustice with emotional maturity.

    December 30, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This is powerful stuff with a quietly arresting performance by [Nahéma] Ricci whose character's strength shines through again and again.
