You Can't Take It With You

This is a lovely Frank Capra classic and an earlier Jimmy Stewart film. Stewart and Jean Arthur struggle to make their relationship work despite clashing families. Stewart comes from a wealthy family of business, and Arthur from a family headed up by a grandfather who values life and happiness more than money. It has all the elements of a typical Capra film and is therefore very uplifting and worth seeing.
