This quintessential Hollywood Christmas film has withstood all the tests of time.
Weighed down by life’s responsibilities, and having sacrificed his own dreams to help others, George Bailey (James Stewart) contemplates suicide on Christmas Eve.But before he can, his guardian angel Clarence (Henry Travers) intervenes, showing him what life would be like in the sleepy, close-knit town of Bedford Falls without his positive influence. Clarence shows George all the lives he’s touched, and how different the community would be without him.
Nominated for numerous Academy Awards, it just wouldn’t be Christmas without this heart-warming festive classic!
