Summary
From the play by Lorraine Hansberry. A $10,000 insurance check can allow the Youngers to finally escape their frustrating life in a crowded Chicago apartment. But escape means different things to each family member. Walter Lee (Sidney Poitier) wants to invest in a liquor store. Lena (Claudia McNeil), his widowed mother, wants to buy a house, and her daughter in college (Ruby Dee) could use the money to complete medical school. When Walter Lee's agonizing conflicts threaten to tear the family apart, Lena relents. She makes a small downpayment on a house and gives Walter Lee the rest if he'll save some for his sister's education. But he risks it all on the liquor store and is ruined. Walter Lee is then forced into selling the family's new house to a home-owners' association that pays well to keep blacks out. Directed by Daniel Petrie. DVD print contains the following special features: production notes; interactive menus; subtitles in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean, and Thai; talent files; theatrical and bonus trailer; scene selections
