Brief Synopsis – A struggling journalist is given the task of writing an editorial to respond to the request of a young girl who wishes to know if Santa Claus is real or not.

Bottom Line – Fascinating story that is presented quite superficially, yet still works quite well. The premise is great and the fact that it’s based on fact enhances things a bit Charles Bronson is superb in the lead role especially given the fact that one wouldn’t usually expect him to be in such a role. The message of the film is great and rings true throughout.  The way that Bronson’s character must deal with his own personal issues and strife while trying to find an answer to this young girl’s question is done in a very profound way. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In the movie, Yes Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus (1991), Charles Bronson plays a man struggling with the death of his beloved wife. In real life, he himself was in mourning, having lost his wife, Jill Ireland, the year before in 1990. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
