A Raisin in the Sun is a perfectly serviceable television adaptation of the recent Broadway revival of Lorraine Hansbury's classic 1959 play, but why it got a press screening at the Sundance Film Festival is difficult to say.

... Raisin works well on television, like so many other fifties plays that tended toward the Freudian and claustrophobic, with their Munch-scream close-ups and slammed Ibsen doors.

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.
