  • 2000 version of Its a Wonderful Life?

    • denscul

    Normally I am not a fan of films that go back or forward in time, but a few have become classics or are still played on TCM with some frequency. Examples are H. G. Welles "The Time Machine." Capra's Wonderful Life had a more realistic ending, if that is possible. The whole idea of time going forward or backward would seem to upset the real world. Literay License aside, logic should still remain as a basic.That being said, this film is a social commentary on the value and choice of one's life. Or a film version of what is really important in life. The ending left me hanging. What happened to the kids? Our kids are the only thing who ultimately pass something on to the future. There are few Shakespeares or Beethovens, and even they seem to be disappearing.The question of time, and all my unansered questions aside, this film is a great interpretation of the cundrum faced by most of us. How do we want to live our lives. What are we willing to give up to achieve fame and fortune. For artists, especially film stars, there is a sad record of diaster in their personal lives. Only a few managed to live "normal" lives. Kate Hepburn is a classic example of someone who knew and expected to give up something important, to achieve imortality as an artist. This film gives most of us who have chidren and a mortgage.Who is Tea Leoni? The TCM database does not seem to identify her, but some other actress born in 1925. This is not the actress who plays Cage's wife.
