Synopsis

Miracle on 34th Street (1994) box art Richard Attenborough plays Kriss Kringle in this remake of the classic 1947 fantasy. In the original, Edmund Gwenn won an Oscar for his portrayal of 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.
