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. Written by

The Director of Photography decided to put a light above each of the actor's and actress' heads during all of the shots to give a distinct glow behind each character. As this was popular in the 90s, it helped give a warm feel to the remake of a classic film. See more »

I think that this movie is a perfect excuse to watch a Christmas film. The movie teaches us about religion and believing, and i see nothing wrong with that. Mara Wilson is fantastic as the young Susan Walker. I feel that even though she is the smallest of the cast members, she leads them perfectly. If Chritmas films do nothing for you, then show it to your kids, because i am positive that they will love and cherish it. While some disagree, i would say that this movie was a great remake of the 1934 film. If this movie wasn't re-made i don't think i would of even heard of the original. I think the movie was in much need of a re-vamping so that younger people, like myself, would be able to addapt the movie more and to understand it a little bit better. I felt Richard Attenborough was a great Santa who was believable. I would recommend this movie 100%.
