In the years since the original screen version was made in 1961, A Raisin In The Sun has become a landmark in cinema - it was the point at which the entertainment industry started to take ordinary African-American life seriously. Like the 1961 version, this 2008 film adaptation takes its cast from a hit Broadway production, featuring the debut of hip-hop mogul Sean 'P Diddy' Combs. The cast also includes plenty of well-known faces including The Cosby Show's Phylicia Rashad. But although the film has a period setting, many of the issues dealt with in the film remain relevant today.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
