Fantasy Casting- It’s a Wonderful Life
What’s today? Why, it’s Christmas Day!
And in the spirit of the season, I’ve decided to re-imagine Frank Capra’s classic film It’s a Wonderful Life. My version incorporates a few key differences that will highlight the societal vulnerability of the Baileys, while maybe illuminating some of the animus of Mr. Potter. Enjoy!
