Best Christmas Movies to Stream on Amazon Prime Video

  • La vita è meravigliosa

    December 20, 1946

    If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re missing out on one of the most life-affirming, joyful movie experiences in history. George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) has spent his entire life giving to the people of Bedford Falls. All that prevents the villainous Mr. Potter (Lionel Barrymore) from taking over the entire town is George’s modest building and loan company. But when $8,000 goes missing, it seems Mr. Potter will swoop in and destroy everything George has fought to preserve. If the ending of this one doesn’t make you choke up, you might be a robot. It’s funny, it’s sweet, it’s romantic, and it’s magical.
