Frank Capra’s timeless classic, It’s a Wonderful Life, is my all time favourite movie to watch at Christmastime. My biggest takeaway from the movie is that all of our lives are intricately connected and even chance encounters have significance.
My favourite scene is where George, played by Jimmy Stewart, is sharing his BIG dream with Mary, played by Donna Reed.
“I’m shaking the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I’m gonna see the world.” (love this)
