Virginia is an eight year old girl looking forward to the appearance of Santa Claus on Christmas. During that time, a bully manages to convince her that the legendary character might not be real. From that moment on, the little girl wanders her hometown in search of something, anything, that will give her hope that he is real.

To be honest, I think this may be my favorite animated Christmas story ever. It didn’t just portray the symbols that represent the holiday, but the underlying emotions of hope and kindness as well. If you ask me, the story and the movie are perfect. Even the method of animation used seems just right.

It’s obviously a movie meant for children, but it is a story told with such passion that even adults can find some interest in it.

I wouldn’t change anything and I have no complaints.

Overall Opinion – 5/5
