It’s a Wonderful Life
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Frank Capra. 1946, 130 mins. 35mm. With James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore. One of the most moving films ever to come out of Hollywood, Capra’s holiday perennial never ceases to surprise with the depths of its humanity and the force of its supernatural allegory. James Stewart sends the viewer on an emotional roller coaster as George Bailey, who dreams of getting out of American everytown Bedford Falls, only to find himself constantly drawn back in an epic struggle with capitalist fatcat Mr. Potter (Lionel Barrymore). It’s a Wonderful Life is exquisitely crafted, funny, wrenching, and in the end cathartic like no other movie.
