It’s day 7 of our very own special Christmas Movie Advent Calendar, the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown. Join with us as we continue to countdown to Christmas with a new movie to watch each day as the days get ever closer to the big day. All films are availble via various streaming and terrestrial TV services.
Day 7 – Miracle On 34th Street (NOWTV)
Six-year-old Susan Walker (Mara Wilson) is skeptical of the Christmas myth surrounding Santa Claus, a trait she perhaps learned from her mother, Dorey (Elizabeth Perkins). When tasked with hiring the Santa who will pose with kids at Macy’s, Dorey enlists a man with the curious name of Kris Kringle (Richard Attenborough) who claims to be Santa himself. His assertions are met with scoffs and threats of institutionalization, but a young lawyer, along with Susan and Dorey, comes to his defense.
Now here’s a film that will not only fill you with the joy of Christmas, but will also restore your faith in humanity as well. A beautiful remake, that the trailer alone will have you welling up. It’s all about whether you still believe in Father Christmas and if by the time the credits roll you don’t want to believe, then you’re probably already dead inside. Embrace the sentiment, embrace the season, embrace Miracle on 34th Street. you’ll be glad you did!
If you’re behind on the countdown you can catch up via the links below the poster. Enjoy.
