The Right Or Wrong In The Movie Antigone

Decent Essays
Commonly in life you must face choices that could affect you later in your future. The explanations for these choices decide if it is right or wrong. In the movie Antigone, the main character must make a choice about what is right and what is wrong based on her beliefs in family, God, and doing what is right no matter what the consequences are. In my opinion, Antigone is right. I say this because she stood up for her beliefs. She had to go through the death of her brother Polyneices. Antigone was willing to die and be punished by King Creon because she wanted a proper burial for her brother. According to the movie, it states, "Polyneices, I say, is to have no burial: no man is to touch him or say the least prayer for him; he shall lie on the plain, unburied; and the birds and the scavenging dogs can do with him whatever they like. You will give no support to whoever breaks this law." King Creon thinks that what Antigone did was wrong because she disobeyed his law. Antigone knows that King Creon forbidden and clearly did not allow anyone to bury Polyneices. I believe that King Creon is wrong in that regard because she obviously loved and cared for her brother no matter what. Antigone felt disrespected, she did not want to sit there allowing her brother to not be properly buried. Antigone eventually got tired of listening to King Creon talk because he just wouldn’t listen to what she had to say. It even got to the point where she was begging to be killed. Religious beliefs
