In honor of the holiday season, Movies That Matters presents Frank Capra’s 1946 classic, It’s A Wonderful Life, on Tuesday, December 18 at 4:30 pm. This film is recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made, and ranks number one on a list of the most inspirational American films of all time.
James Stewart stars 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. The angel shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born.
This film may be 65 years old but its lessons and themes are timeless; gratitude, community, and working together are even more important today. This free screening will be followed by a discussion and tissues will be available.
The Social Responsibility Committee’s monthly Movies That Matter are chosen to inform as well as move us to think and act in productive ways. Join us at the UU Fellowship.
