A Raisin in the Sun

1961 UR

Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee shine in this film version of Lorraine Hansberry's play about an inner-city black family. Poitier plays Walter Lee Younger, a chauffeur with a wife (Dee) and family to support. When a financial windfall puts Younger's dream of starting his own business within reach, the family is plunged into conflict with one another and with the intolerant world around them.
