George Bailey has become an archetypal hero. He is the every day man,
with every day struggles, loves, losses and desires. He wants the world
and is given Bedford Falls. "It's a Wonderful Life," has little to do
with how wonderful the life you aspire to have, but more about how
wonderful the everyday is.
George Bailey's journey through the narrative, from that of a young boy saving people in their crucial times of need, up until the deciding factors that lead him to that bridge on the cold and snowy night, exhibit the basic human nature.
Everyone has felt at one point or another in their lives that they have hit rock bottom, what this story exemplifies is every little action has a reaction. George may have felt that what he was doing wasn't important, he was miserable to a degree and gave up much of his hopes and dreams. What he didn't realize, and what audiences have embraced for decades, is that he didn't get the dreams he thought he desired, he got the reality which made the dreams pale and weak.
This is one of the most amazing movies I have ever seen! I love everything about it! From the sets to the costumes, and the acting. I personally loved the fact that Camryn Manheim was Snow White! How often do you get to see a larger woman be classified as the "fairest of them all"? To have someone like her represent beauty shows true class! This movie is fun filled excitement and non-stop action. Any fantasy lover is sure to love this movie!
