It's Hogswatch (equivalent to Christmas) on the Discworld and the Hogfather has gone missing, requiring Death to take his place while his granddaughter Susan endeavors to find out what has happened.
As impossible as it is to truly capture Terry Pratchett's world on film, Hogfather did a rather good job. Death impersonates the discworld's equivalent of Santa and his granddaughter (an excellent Michelle Dockery) invades the toothfairy's castle. There are also assassins, wizards and a god of hangovers. Yes, it is awesome.

This is by no means a good movie. The plot is all over the place and the characters are, well, mostly idiots. But the 90s vibe is strong in this one and it is really snowy.
