Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 1961 film version of A Raisin in the Sun, with a screenplay by the author, won an award at the Cannes Film Festival, even though one-third of the actual screenplay had been cut out. This completely restored screenplay is the accurate and authoritative edition of Hansberry's script, and a testiment to her accomplishment as a black woman artist.

Synopsis:

This edition offers Hansberry's complete uncut screen adaptation of her play, containing at least forty percent new material that does not appear in the play.
