December Film Club

Hey everyone, thanks for all who could make it out to see Take Shelter.

For the month of December I've decided to show Frank Capra's classic, life affirming tale: It's a Wonderful Life.

Released in 1946, the film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers).  Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born.

It's a Wonderful Life is an American Christmas drama film produced and directed by Frank Capra, that was based on the short story "The Greatest Gift", written by Philip Van Doren Stern in 1939.  The film is considered one of the most inspirational and best loved movies in American cinema as it currently holds an 8.7/10 rating on IMDB consumer reviews and a 93% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Join us for a screening of this Christmas Classic, Thursday, December 20th at 6:15pm.  Hope to see you there!

Here's the trailer:
