A Raisin in the Sun from Columbia

Columbia Tristar Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of A Raisin in the Sun for 10th November 2003 with a retail price of £12.99. This groundbreaking drama celebrating the human spirit features an electrifying performance by Academy Award winner Sidney Poitier (Best Actor, Lilies of the Field, 1963). The Younger family, frustrated with living in their crowded Chicago apartment, sees the arrival of a $10,000 insurance check as the answer to their prayers. Matriarch Lena Younger (Claudia McNeil) promptly puts a down payment on a house in an all-white suburban neighbourhood. But the family is divided when Lena entrusts the balance of the money to her mercurial son Walter Lee (Poitier), against the wishes of her daughter (Diana Sands) and daughter-in-law (Ruby Dee). It takes the strength and integrity of this African-American family to battle against generations of prejudice to try to achieve their piece of the American Dream. Features on the DVD are:
