James Stewart is George Bailey, a man whose attempted suicide on Christmas Eve gains the attention of a guardian angel, Clarence Odbody who is sent to help him in his hour of need.
Most of the film is told through flashbacks spanning George’s entire life and narrated by Franklin and Joseph, unseen Angels who are preparing Clarence for his mission to save George.
Through these flashbacks we see all the people whose lives have been touched by George and the difference he has made to the community in which he lives.
“Combine the characters, the story, the message, and the acting, and it’s easy to see why It’s a Wonderful Life isn’t just a holiday favorite, but a great movie by almost any standards.” – James Berardinelli, ReelViews
