“The film Frank Capra was born to make, [and] he poured his heart and soul into it. James Stewart stars as a small-town nobody, on the brink of suicide, who believes his life is worthless. Guardian angel Henry Travers shows him how wrong he is….Wonderfully drawn and acted by a superb cast and told with a sense of image and metaphor (the use of water is especially elegant) that appears in no other Capra film. The epiphany of movie sentiment and a transcendent experience.”
Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
