It's a Wonderful Life

Well here we are at the ultimate number one Christmas film ever (in our opinion) - It's A Wonderful Life.

It's A Wonderful Life is the story of a man good man - George Bailey, who has spent his life trying to help others wherever he could in his Buildings and Loans company, even during hard times. Times are had again and when the company takings get accidentally misplaced George knows he will have to take the blame. Pondering his life, and what could have been, he considers his family would be better off without him and goes off to take his own life. A guardian angel comes down to earth to show George see how things could have been.

An absolute classic story (wIth shades of A Christmas Carol). Jimmy Stewart, playing a good man in a good film helping us remember the spirit of Christmas (well not the strictly religious part necessarily) but goodwill to all men anyway. The "naive" optimism is a huge part of the films charm and can certainly be excused bearing in mind it was made just after the end of World War II. If you need something to help you regain the Christmas spirit - this is the one.

Its A Wonderful Life is a wonderful film, and is on the top of the tree on December 24th in our Films guaranteed to make you feel Christmassy (UK edition)

By the way if you haven't bought all your presents yet its probably too late now - you shouldn't have spent your time watching all these Christmas films should you!

We hope you enjoyed our guide - have a very Merry Christmas.
