Movie Review: It's A Wonderful Life

It may be a little too late to review a Christmas movie, but It's a Wonderful Life has a message that is important all through the year.

George Bailey has run into some financial trouble. His Uncle Billy has lost 8,000 dollars of their bank's money, and George might end up going to jail. But in the midst of this crisis, comes a guardian angel, Clarence. A bit bumbly, but good hearted, to help out the situation. But as he's trying to encourage George, what does George do? He says that everyone else would be better off without him, and the he wished he'd never been born! What does Clarence do in response? He takes George on an adventure into a world where he really has never been born to see what would happen if he really hadn't been born! The movie is a little slow in beginning, but it's message is great. I would encourage anyone who enjoys Christmas movies, and feel-good movies in general, to watch this.

It was made in 1946, and directed by Frank Capra. It starred Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey and Donna Reed as Mary Bailey.
