"[Combs] hits the right notes amidst Tony winners Rashad and McDonald....The heart of this drama beats loudly to the pulse of American dreams." -- Grade: B

Product Description:

Lorraine Hansberry's play, A RAISIN IN THE SUN, has enjoyed a charmed life since hitting Broadway in 1959. The original Broadway cast took the play to the big screen in 1961, earning a Golden Globe nomination for Sidney Poitier, and now the 2004 adaptation, featuring Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, makes the same transition. The plot follows a 1950s African American family who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of a $10,000 insurance check. Walter Lee (Combs) wants to spend the money to buy a liquor store, while his mother, Lena (Phylicia Rashad), wants to purchase a house. Walter's pregnant wife, Ruth (Audra McDonald), sides with Lena, while also considering getting an abortion. Trouble strikes when Walter fritters most of the money away on his bad investment and Lena stirs up racial conflict by putting a down payment on a house in a white neighborhood. This adaptation, directed by Kenny Leon, embodies much of the controversy and fine performances that made the original production so memorable.

Description by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment:

Based on the play that inspired a generation, "A Raisin in the Sun" tells the story of a family living and struggling on Chicago's South Side in the 1950s. A fiercely moving portrait of people whose hopes and dreams are constantly deferred, "A Raisin in the Sun" was the first play written by an African American woman to be produced on Broadway. The classic, still-relevant story now will be showcased in this totally new television movie adaptation.
Sean Combs reprises the role which brought him critical acclaim in the highly anticipated, special three-hour television movie adaptation of the award-winning Broadway revival. Joining him is the cast of the award-winning production, including Emmy and Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad, four-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald, Tony Award nominee Sanaa Lathan, plus "ER" star John Stamos.
