Home For The Holidays

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Jimmy Stewart takes a journey into an alternate reality in which he never made an impact on his community. Frank Capra’s holiday classic is often considered sentimental or corny, but a fresh reading reveals it as the nuanced and frequently dark film it is, strong medicine for its post-war times. Fundamentally a film about civic interdependency and the value of the decent individual, it seems as urgent today as ever.
