Series: Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
This Hollywood classic illustrates how one man s integrity and selflessness influence an entire community of people.
It s a Wonderful Life tells the story of George Bailey, a struggling businessman with dreams of greater things. Born and raised in Bedford Falls, New York, Bailey cannot shake the town and its people. After inheriting his father s business and falling (unwillingly) for the girl next door, Bailey finds himself stuck in a situation that will test his patience, his inner strength, and his family s love.
This study will help you discuss the deeper themes of the movie. What is the value of a human life? How much influence does one person have? What does George Bailey learn about selflessness and greed? How does the movie portray the power of ambition?
