Frank Capra understood filmmaking. This is a movie that could be about
anyone of us and a movie that might relate to the life of anyone of us.
Sadly the weak dismiss the movie as sentimentalist. I say the "weak" because they are threatened by how real and how close to life the movie actually is.
Our lives are full of sentiment and the same sentiments the movie stirs in the audience are as strong and relevant in 2012 as 1946.
Interestingly it gets pegged as a holiday or Christmas movie. I don't see it that way but maybe for many that is the time when they explore their own sentimental side.
Watch this movie in the dark and late at night. It will never disappoint the film-goer who drops there guard and believes they are a Bailey.
