I enjoyed seeing the Santa School sessions, something we don't have down this way yet so it was instructive to see how they handle the hard topics as well as the fun stuff.
To get to see him perform in the parades and special events, even to do a volunteer stint standing on the street ringing a bell, great stuff.
Did I get anything out of this? Sure, as a Santa I got to see many faces of people that up until now have just been a name on an email. It was especially cool for me to see Adele and her workshop. Her name has high respect for quality suits in the Santa community so to see her at work was a treat for me.
Away from my own role I also enjoyed seeing somebody "get it" about Christmas and just what it is to really become part of the fun and the joy of the Season.
I think families will enjoy this tale so long as their children are of an age where they can understand that there is a real Santa and there are also lots of helpers.
Quality of the movie and editing was good and I was impressed that this movie came out of an independent movie house.
One negative was the many (4?) trailers I had to sit through before I got to see the menu. Maybe it was something I was doing wrong but this seemed to be forcing me to watch stuff that I had no interest in just so that I could get to the good bits.
Thus begins the magical and delightful BECOMING SANTA, a documentary that details Jack's journey to serve as the ultimate holiday fat man. From his humble (and smelly!) beginnings of bleaching his beard, mustache, and hair a pure white all the way to showing up by appointment in several homes on Christmas Eve where children are briefly allowed to spot Santa Claus placing presents under the Christmas Tree, Jack embraces his new mission, and he learns a little about himself and what truly makes the yuletide gay along the way. He has a custom Santa suit tailored to his body; he attends a `Santa School' to get training on how to deal with children; and he even volunteers to play St. Nick on the Susquehanna Railroad's `Polar Express'!Read more ›
As well as following Jack as he becomes Santa, this film also spends some time show us the history of Santa Claus.
A delightful and touching film. Goes great with cookies and a glass of milk.
