Raisin in the Sun, A (2008): TV Version

“A Raisin in the Sun,” directed by Kenny Leon and adapted by Paris Qualles from the famous play by Lorraine Hansberry, is well acted but not as powerful or compelling as the Sidney Poitier’s version in 1961.

This  filmed TV version of the recent Broadway revival, starring Sean Combs, Phylicia Rashad and Audra McDonald, world-premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, before getting a successful broadvast on ABC.
