Yes, today I watched It’s a Wonderful Life for the very first time, I know, I know it’s insane. So....I loved this movie, like, I think it’s one of my new favorite films. There is no film that captures the meaning of Christmas more then this movie. The entire film from beginning to end just really struck a cord with me. James Stewart gives one of the best performances ever, his character is someone you really, really care about, his struggle is very relatable and understandable. James Stewart and Donna Reed have unbelievable chemistry. You believe them as this perfect couple. The cinematography is amazing. The script is amazing, it feels very personal and realistic. This is just simply a film that I could talk about for hours, The CLIMAX of this film...speechless. it’s a holiday masterpiece, a new tradition for me, and one of the most relatable, personal movies I have ever seen. Amazing.
