When I watched the film, “A Raisin in the Sun” during class, I was actually very interested and overall had a great experience. The movie was very easy to comprehend and the film gave different perspectives of the family which I thought was done very effectively. I felt bad for the grandma because she had to decide what she was going to do with the money. Beneatha and Walter both wanted the money to do different things for the future. I was once put in that situation and it was very difficult to make the right choice without getting one person upset.
Throughout the film, there are many themes and one of them is family is always first. I also laughed when the main character, Walter was P. Diddy, a rapper and a celebrity. I consider family in being a main theme because there were many obstacles they had to get through. Walter wanted the money because he wanted to brighten the future for his family and make more money so they can live more comfortably When Walter will get mad and leave to drink, his wife, kids, and Mama would be very scared for him and wanted to keep him safe. Mama always loved Walter no matter what he did and always had her arms open for her family.
At the very end of the film, the family is united and very happy that they stuck in there. The film was located and shot in Chicago. It was a time where it was very tough for African Americans and segregation still existed from the African Americans and the whites. The outfits of the everyday people in the film was much different than the everyday people you see today. The family had to decide if they wanted to move in a white area neighborhood. At the end of the film, Walter decides to move. I wanted to know what happened when they moved in but the movie ended when they agreed to move in.
I thought that the acting and scenario was very believable. The only part I did not think was believable was when they agreed to move in the white are neighborhood. If i were them, I would have not moved in because I would feel like they would get killed. The characters in the movie all played an important role and everyone was clear and easy to understand what their roles were in the film. I felt like Mama was an outstanding character because she was the one who had to make the biggest decision in the movie and that was to decide what they were going to do with the $10,000 they had.
She was a very good actress and I actually felt the sympathy for her and what she was going through. Her role was very believable and liked how she was very loving. I did not really like the character of Beneatha because she did not really do much other than her wanting the money so she is able to go to school and become a doctor. I did not like how her role was to go after men and go out with them a lot. I think the most outstanding theme was the very end of the film when Walter agreed to move and how the family were reunited and all happy together.
The strong areas of the film was the scenario and the plot. I really enjoyed the film and it was very interesting. It always kept me on my toes and wanted to find out the ending and what they were going to do as a family and the money. I was very surprised that they ended up moving even though I do not agree with their decision. I strongly felt that the production was very effective and got the main theme out to the audience. Anyone who watched A Raisin in the Sun would not have trouble understanding what is going on.
