Zuzu's Petals

Before the Christmas onslaught begins—the shopping, the parties, the rushing around, the (more) parties, the traveling, the endless cries of “gimme, gimme, gimme”—wouldn’t it be lovely to take an evening to remember what it’s all about? It’s a Wonderful Life, directed by Frank Capra and released in 1946, was initially a box office flop, but it has come to be considered one of the most inspirational and celebratory films of all time. It’s essentially required holiday viewing. In fact, in some states, we believe it’s actually legislated. And much like the relatives you’re forced to be around this time of year, whether you like it or not, you’ll have It’s a Wonderful Life coming out of your pores by New Year’s Day. May as well see it on the big screen as Capra intended.
