Heart-wrenching and insightful, "A Raisin in the Sun" (1961) is Daniel Petrie's much-lauded film adaptation of Lorraine Hansberry's landmark play about a 1950s African-American family. The film is as much an insight into the human spirit as it was a revelation about black family life at the time of its release. Academy Award-winner Sidney Poitier gives a breathtaking performance alongside Claudia McNeil, Diana Sands and Ruby Dee, as they play a family struggling in the slums that suddenly comes into some money. Each person sees the money as a path to his or her dreams, but deciding how to spend it threatens to rip the family apart.
