Critic Reviews for A Raisin in the Sun
No one will mistake this well-produced but inevitably dialogue-driven piece for pure cinema, but Leon and adapter Paris Qualles open up the play just enough to avoid the usual stage-to-screen claustrophobia.
A quintessentially American play, revisited...this one has towering performances from Rashad and McDonald.
An African-American classic every bit as relevant today as when it was first staged.
Audience Reviews for A Raisin in the Sun
The was a really moving film. Phyllicia Rashad did an amazing performance. This made me want to see the original.
A solid TV movie. I love the stage play. There is a lot for me to identify with in the story though I'm not a racial minority. It was interesting to see the one room stage set expanded upon with some scenes of each character out in the world. Diddy is not bad, but the women steal the show.
Very touching story, everyone plays thier roles well. Though it is long it is a great movie.
