"The kind of experience movies were invented for." -  Empire

"The most well-loved of all Christmas movies." - Chicago Tribune

"No matter how often you see this perennial Christmas favorite, you will be entranced. Flawless." - Common Sense Media

Frank Capra's paean to small-town values and the ordinary guy who does the right thing is a classic story of redemption and second chances, with James Stewart as a man who's come to the end of his rope one Christmas Eve, and Iowa native Donna Reed as the high-school sweetheart who became his wife. The supporting cast includes Lionel Barrymore, Beulah Bondi, Ward Bond and Gloria Grahame. It's A Wonderful Life was the first release from Liberty Films, the pioneering independent label founded by Capra and fellow producer-directors William Wyler and George Stevens, and went on to become not just a perennial holiday favorite, but one of the most beloved of all American movies.
