It’s A Wonderful Life
The hallmark of a great movie is its ability to continue to have new meaning within its cherished familiarity: James Stewart plays a small-town guy who sacrifices his dreams to help others, only to see his optimism crushed by greed. It takes an angel-in-training named Clarence to reveal what Bedford Falls would have become without his commitment. Every year, we discover a new facet of Frank Capra’s classic holiday film, It’s A Wonderful Life (1946, Rated PG) finding messages of sacrifice, love, community and hope. And in spite of what we read in the news, it is the movie’s awareness of the need to come together that shines through. In that tradition, you’re invited to bring family and friends to see It’s A Wonderful Life at Cinestudio.
