George Bailey (Stewart) had big dreams, he was going to see the world and do anything and everything to make his life brilliant and get away from small town Bedford Falls. We are taken on the journey of his life up to the present day as an angel called Clarence watches to see how he can help him as he contemplates suicide. This really is seen as such a classic film, a classic Christmas film for that matter. But it really is one of the most depressing films ever, until the last ten minutes! It is a film that you must watch over the Christmas period and you will fall in love with George Bailey.
New posters for “The King’s Speech” seem to keep appearing every few days. While they are not very different from the previous to be released, different words are on them. It really is getting quite a lot of Oscar buzz, with early talk suggesting that it will be nominated for all the major awards. January release for the UK and I am really looking forward to it!
