Joanna, the beautiful daughter of crusading publisher Matthew Drayton and his patrician wife Christina, returns home with her new fiancé John Prentice, a distinguished black doctor. Both of their families must sit down face to face and examine each other’s level of intolerance.

Our take

Starring alongside Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier shook up a nation torn by prejudice with his electric screen presence. Released only six months after anti-miscegenation laws were ruled unconstitutional in the US, this tale of love and acceptance is a vital Hollywood milestone.
