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.
