Richard Attenborough plays Kriss Kringle in this remake of the classic 1947 fantasy. In the original, Edmund Gwenn gave an Oscar-winning performance as the elderly gent whose behaviour while working as a department-store Santa suggests that he believes he really is Father Christmas. Here Attenborough positively twinkles in the role in an attempt to convince moppet Mara Wilson, and the audience, that he is a living legend. Although the film as a whole is a much more glamorous affair, and Wilson and Elizabeth Perkins as her mother are undoubtedly charming, it does lack some of the magic of the original.
A woman raises her six-year-old daughter to believe that Santa Claus does not exist, but they both have a change of heart after meeting a department store Father Christmas who claims to be the man himself. When the kindly fellow is accused of being a charlatan, his new friends engage a lawyer to prove his true identity. Remake of the 1947 family drama, with Richard Attenborough, Elizabeth Perkins, Mara Wilson and Dylan McDermott.
