A Raisin in the Sun
Drama • 1961 • 2 hr 8 min
It's basically a filmed play, but the dialogue, structure, and acting raise it to a level far above the typical screenplay and direction.
Very moving, heart-felt, funny, and real. Wonderful dialogue and acting all around. Being 1961 this movie took a lot of chances. Excellent.
Very character/dialogue based, Entertaining with memorable characters, avoid if you dont like movies based on plays that have littleaction
Really great, interesting story. This has some powerful acting in it but is slowly paced and definitely still feels like a play
black folks get money & want to “move on up to the east side” like the Jefferson’s. Dad looses money & they fight “racism” nothing new here.
Really entertaining. Not as good as the play though.
Nice rendition of the play
