It's a Wonderful Life

2h 10m Drama, Family 1946

Required viewing during the Christmas period, and a perennial IFI favourite, James Stewart is at his most likeable in It’s A Wonderful Life as George Bailey, loyal family man and friend whose selfless nature has resulted in his spending his whole life in hometown Bedford Falls, despite his ardent desire for travel and adventure. When despotic merchant Mr. Potter seizes an opportunity to ruin George, and thus consolidate his own control over the town, George finds himself preparing to jump from a bridge. However, a higher power intervenes and sends Angel (Second Class) Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers) to show George what life in Bedford Falls would have been like had he never been born. Despite its lack of commercial success when first released, this heart-warming story has grown in popularity over the decades, rediscovered and beloved by successive generations.
