Hollywood‘s best–loved star teams up with America‘s favourite director to create one of the world‘s most popular films. "It‘s A Wonderful Life" is the ultimate seasonal feel–good film. Starring the unforgettable James Stewart as George Bailey, the man who receives the greatest Christmas gift of all, and a superb ensemble cast including Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore, this high–spirited Christmas tale is directed by the immortal Frank Capra and ranks as an all–time favourite of fans and critics alike.
James Stewart is George Bailey, a man whose attempted suicide on Christmas Eve gains the attention of a guardian angel, Clarence Odbody who is sent to help him in his hour of need. Most of the film is told through flashbacks spanning George's entire life and narrated by Franklin and Joseph, unseen Angels who are preparing Clarence for his mission to save George. Through these flashbacks we see all the people whose lives have been touched by George and the difference he has made to the community in which he lives.
