A Raisin In The Sun Review


Sidney Poitier is on fire, as usual, in this play adaptation -- something in the vein of A Death of a Salesman, Long Day's Journey into Night, and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Poitier's family faces racial prejudice as it moves into a new home in an all-white neighborhood while entering an ill-advised business venture that leaves them penniless. The struggle to triumph in the face of adversity transcends the film being pegged as a civil rights picture, and thanks to the leadership of Poitier, a classic is born.
