This heartwarming fantasy is one of the most popular films ever made. The film begins as angels discuss George Bailey (James Stewart), a small-town resident so beset with problems that he contemplates suicide.
In flashback, we review George’s life, learning that he has always wanted to leave his hometown to see the world, but that circumstances and his own good heart have kept him in Bedford Falls. Stewart is the heart and the soul of the film as the dreamer who sacrifices all for his fellow man.
Bring a hanky!
