IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE

An annual Belcourt tradition! Frank Capra's inverted take on A CHRISTMAS CAROL stars Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey, a good man who's spent a lifetime giving up on his dreams in order to keep life in his small town humming. When a guardian angel named Clarence finds a despondent George poised to jump off a bridge, he shows George what life would've been like had he never been born.
