It's a Wonderful Life

Frank Capra

Like overcooked poultry, Brussels sprouts, indigestion and the Queen’s Speech, It’s a Wonderful Life is a Christmas tradition. However, unlike these things, Frank Capra’s masterpiece is both tremendous fun and good for you. Far from being a saccharine, sentimental wallow, this film, in little over two hours, manages to run the gamut of human emotions, from total joy to utter despair.

“…reminds us why every individual matters and why life is worth living”

Unquestionably made to give hope to post-war America, the film shows us all the hardships of life in a world shaped by global conflict and economic depression, yet, in a final sublime moment of catharsis, reminds us why every individual matters and why life is worth living. But this is not just a film of its time; over 60 years on, It’s a Wonderful Life not only continues to give comfort, but remains as vital and relevant as ever.
