Brimming with goodwill It’s A Wonderful Life is the seasonal classic no Christmas is complete without. Beset by problems, kind-hearted George Bailey (James Stewart) considers ending it all until his guardian angel Clarence steps in to show him what his home town would be like without his benevolent presence. Thus, he decides to return home to the friends and family who hold him dear just in time for Christmas. This slice of pure movie magic which tops most polls as the best festive film of all time feels more poignant than ever this year. 

“As audiences join disillusioned George Bailey on his discovery to find that his life is wonderful, viewers are also forced to reevaluate what’s really important in their own lives – that, as the film says, “no man is a failure who has friends.” Harpers Bazaar
