Angel shows the way out

BY JULIA SUTTON

Starring James Stewart, Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore, It’s A Wonderful Life (PG) is a story about an angel who helps a frustrated businessman (George Bailey) by showing him what life if never existed.

Bailey has spent his entire life giving up his big dreams for the good of his town.

But in the present, on Christmas Eve, he is broken and suicidal over the misplacing of an $8,000 loan and the plans of an evil millionaire.

Bailey’s guardian angel, Clarence, falls to Earth, literally, and shows him how his town, family, and friends would turn out if he had never been born.

He finally sees how much he meant to so many people so should he really throw it all away?
