This moving screen adaptation of Lorraine Hansberry’s legendary, prize-winning play is about the tightly knit Younger family and their attempts to better their situation by moving out of their crowded South Side Chicago apartment. Awaiting an insurance check they hope will change circumstances, each family member has a different idea of how to spend the money. A new 4K restoration of A Raisin in the Sun will be screened.
