Ruby Dee and Sidney Poitier
Ever rewatch a movie and fall in love with it all over again? It had been years since I’d seen A Raisin in the Sun (in spite of the fact that I love Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee to distraction). I decided it was high time to revisit the movie and am I ever glad I did. I was reminded of the very unique dynamic these two stars had together.
There’s just something about taking two incredibly intense, powerful, talented.. and, let’s face it… beautiful!… stars and putting them in one film together. There are times when it seems they produce too much electricity for the screen to contain.
If you haven’t seen A Raisin in the Sun in a few years, I hope you’ll revisit it soon. If you’ve NEVER seen it…. please, please, please watch it! This is a vital piece of film history and its stars will blow you away.
You can find A Raisin in the Sun on dvd (Amazon link) or watch (today’s a great time!) on Prime Video.
