It’s a Wonderful Life

Dir. Frank Capra. USA 1946. 2h 11m. Starring James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Thomas Mitchell, Henry Travers

The ultimate Christmas classic. Beset with personal and professional problems, George Bailey finds his previously happy life falling apart around him on Christmas Eve. Seeing no way out, George considers whether his family would be better off without him - but Clarence, his guardian angel, intervenes and shows George what his beloved hometown of Bedford Falls would be like without him.

‘The film is gripping enough simply with the telling of George's lifestory. A genuine American classic.’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘Although peppered with colourful, sharply drawn characters, this is Stewart's movie, instantly loveable as a small-town dreamer who sacrifices everything for others. Enjoy it in a cinema so you can sob among others.’ ★★★★★ Ian Freer, Empire Magazine
