It's a Wonderful Life

“The most well-loved of all Christmas movies.” — Chicago Tribune

23 December 2018 25 December 2018

English with Thai subtitles


George Bailey is a small-town man whose life seems so desperate he contemplates suicide. He had always wanted to leave Bedford Falls to see the world, but circumstances and his own good heart have led him to stay. He sacrificed his education for his brother's, kept the family-run savings and loan afloat, protected the town from the avarice of the greedy banker Mr. Potter, and married his childhood sweetheart. As he prepares to jump from a bridge, his guardian angel intercedes; showing him what life would have become for the residents of Bedford Falls if he had never lived.

“I love it, corny as it may be, because it reminds every one of us that we all make contributions to the people around us, contributions we ourselves don't even realise.” — David Stratton (At The Movies)

“The inspirational, thoroughly festive ending is guaranteed to bring tears to the eyes.” — The Daily Telegraph (UK)

“A moving tribute to the power of the individual, Frank Capra’s snowy festive classic is a true delight, as entertaining as it is message-driven. James Stewart puts in the performance of a lifetime as a potential suicide who’s given a chance to look at life with fresh eyes. Merry Christmas George!” — Time Out (No. 1 in Best Christmas Movies)
