Miracle on 34th Street (Seaton, 1947)

Miracle on 34th Street (George Seaton, 1947)

Fight the good fight of the faith.  –1 Timothy 6:12a

A nice warm-hearted story of believing. A man believing confidently in himself despite heavy criticism from many of those around him. A little girl finding the ability to believe in the unbelievable. A grown woman slowing down long enough to believe again what she likely believed a long time prior. And a man fighting for these beliefs despite being unsure himself. It’s sentimental and it’s silly, but it’s a perfect Christmas movie that I can’t believe I had never seen until this year. New York feels real, as the does the department store experience of the 1940s – a culture I was obviously never a part of, but one that is strangely comforting in an American tradition sort of way. As my wife so accurately put it, this one is going in to the regular Christmas movie rotation.  7.5/10
