What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Frank Capra's bittersweet, heartwarming movie It's a Wonderful Life is a Christmas classic. Tweens and teens will love it as an engaging story that takes on the human condition in all its complexity. While there's some dated behavior -- particularly in the way an African-American maid is treated -- there's also a beautiful message about how much each person means to the world. Expect some gunshots, a short fist-fight, and other scenes involving temper issues -- as well as the despair that drives George to consider ending his own life -- but overall this is a family-friendly pick for the holidays (or anytime!).
