Tomorrow, the Centre for Assistance and Development of Movie Talents (TPD) will present a screening of the movie It’s A Wonderful Life directed by the American director Frank Capra.
Produced in 1946, the fantasy drama movie is based on the short story and booklet The Greatest Gift by Philip Van Doren.
The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers). Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be had he never been born.
The film was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture and has been recognised by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made.
Director Capra said that the film was his personal favourite among those he directed.
The film will be presented in English with Vietnamese subtitles. Entry: VNÑ20,000 (donation for TPD’s fund for movie talents). The screening will be at 7.30pm. TPD is located on the 4th floor, 51 Trần Hưng Đạo Street. — VNS
