Director: Frank Capra
Starring: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers
Back on the big screen for Christmas 2022 one of the most popular and enduring films ever made, Frank Capra‘s It’s A Wonderful Life is a gloriously sentimental testament to homely small-town moral values.
Masterfully crafted, the film opens with angels discussing George Bailey (James Stewart), a man so beset with problems that he contemplates a Christmas-time suicide.
As George prepares to jump from a bridge his guardian angel Clarence Oddbody (Henry Travers) intervenes and shows him how badly Bedford Falls would be without his good deeds.
James Stewart gives one of his finest, most affecting performances and the film looks better-than-ever in its new restoration.
