Storyline

A little girl discovers dreams do come true if you really believe. Six-year-old Susan has doubts about childhood's most enduring miracle - Santa Claus. Her mother told her the "secret" about Santa a long time ago, so Susan doesn't expect to receive the most important gifts on her Christmas list. But after meeting a special department store Santa who's convinced he's the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all - something to believe in.

Imbodies Christmas
5 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

There are some movies in which one watches in life which has no real intention but to make a person feel good about not only themselves but for the collective people. Miracle on 34th Street does this for me. Not only does the performance of all the cast make this memorable but the there is no real person which you end up hating, except maybe 2. This is a must movie for all Christmas lovers out there who just want a tale told to them which will make them as warm as that eggnog they drink that night, (unless you drink it cold like in Australia). Brilliant movie which I watch every Christmas. In conclusion, it is a movie which once watching it and allowing one's self to be captivated by its charm, one finally feels like a kid again. And anyway which is worse? 'A lie that brings a smile, or a truth which draws a tear' Best Santa I have seen
