Characterization & Quest for the American Dream
Walter lee younger has had the dream to make it big in life and become successful with enough money to finally support his family. We see how passionate Walter gets with mama when he tells her the world has always been about money with a raised voice in the film. He tells her what he feels is true and lets her know that was the way he has always felt.
Beneatha's dream was to go to medical school and become a doctor. When the money was wasted by Walter, her dreams became shattered until Asiguy gave her hope again by asking her to come back to Africa with him and be a doctor there. The film shows her stages of despair and joy very well with benathas acting skills.
