It's a Wonderful Life-Frank Capra's beloved holiday classic-is considered among the greatest movies of all time. It is among the American Film Institute's 100 best films of all time, in addition to being named America's most inspirational movie. The 1946 gem was nominated for five Academy Awards, and its airings on television still garner the attention of millions each year.

Jimmy Stewart portrays George Bailey, a hardworking, self-sacrificing businessman who eventually becomes dispirited when an unfortunate turn of events threatens to sink his company. The film demonstrates for viewers the power of prayer, the love and strength that exist in relationships we establish and in the community that surrounds us, and the wonderful gift of life that God has bestowed on us all.

Three clips from the movie are provided with questions for reflection. This is a wonderful movie to watch and discuss during Advent season.
