It’s a Wonderful Life is one of the most popular Christmas movies of all time. If you haven’t seen it, you should definitely consider it this year!
Directed by Frank Capra, the movie stars James Stewart, Donna Reed, and Lionel Barrymore. It focuses on banker George Bailey (played by James Stewart), who is downtrodden after losing several thousand dollars on Christmas Eve.
He wishes he had never been born, so God sends him a guardian angel to show George the profound impact his life makes on others. The angel shows him what life would be like had he never existed.
Fun fact: Director Frank Capra was a Catholic Hollywood director who had a conversion in the 1930s. Many of his movies, he said, were scripturally and spiritually-based. Learn more about his Catholic roots here.
