IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE
Starring Donna Reed and James Stewart

Light up your Christmas, with the quintessential holiday classic starring the unforgettable James Stewart, Donna Read and a superb ensemble cast.

Regarded as a cinematic masterpiece and one of the most popular films of all time, ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ is the very definition of the Christmas feel good family film. This high spirited Christmas classic directed by the legendary Frank Capra ranks among fans and film critics alike as one of the most universally loved films ever made.

George Bailey has spent his entire life giving of himself to the people of Bedford Falls. He has always longed to travel but never had the opportunity in order to prevent rich skinflint Mr. Potter from taking over the entire town. All that prevents him from doing so is George’s modest building and loan company, which was founded by his generous father. But on Christmas Eve, George’s Uncle Billy loses the business’s $8,000 while intending to deposit it in the bank. Potter finds the misplaced money, hides it from Billy, and George’s troubles begin.
