“Klaus” Movie Review

Sydni Bratthauar, Editor

It’s that time of year again; the weather gets colder, the nights longer. But December is the host of a fantastic holiday: Christmas! Netflix has gotten the memo and released an original movie called Klaus.

I’ve watched this movie twice already and will probably watch it again before December ends. Klaus is an animated family movie about a man named Jesper. Jesper is dubbed the worst postman ever, as he is lazy, spoiled, and rich. However, his father cuts him off and gives him an assignment to complete before Christmas. Jesper needs to collect and deliver 6,000 letters! Shouldn’t be too hard, right? That’s what he thought. 

His father sent him to a town called Smeerensburg. The people of Smeerensburg are in a family feud, rude, angry, and certainly not in a Christmas mood. This town never sends or writes letters, as Jesper finds out the hard way. One day, Jesper stumbles upon a cabin in the woods and encounters a retired toymaker named Klaus. Jesper learns that there’s much more than money in the world and the famous legend of Santa Claus is born.

Klaus is one of my favorite Christmas movies and I highly recommend it to everyone! Klaus is a movie that puts some magic into the holiday.
