Klaus | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Jesper Johansson (Jason Schwartzman) is the lazy and spoiled son of a wealthy Postmaster General, who has enrolled Jesper into his postman training academy hoping that it will reform him. Jesper deliberately underperforms, forcing his father to finally send him to the distant island town of Smeerensburg with the task of posting six-thousand letters within a year. If Jesper fails, he will be cut off from the family estate. Upon arrival, it is explained to Jesper by sarcastic ferryman Mogens (Norm MacDonald), and bitter teacher-turned-fishmonger Alva (Rashida Jones), that the town's perpetually warring families - the Ellingboes and the Krums - comprise nearly all of the populace and hardly exchange words, let alone letters.
Desperately trying to find a way to post letters from the town, Jesper notices on the map in his office that there is an isolated dwelling at the far end of the island. Investigating, he discovers a reclusive woodsman named Klaus (J.K. Simmons) with a house filled with handmade toys. Terrified by the man's imposing appearance, Jesper flees, while inadvertently leaving behind a sad drawing he had found earlier made by one of Smeerensburg's children. Klaus forces Jesper to lead him to the boy's house depicted in the drawing, and then makes Jesper secretly deliver a toy to the boy inside.
Word of this event spreads to other children, who go to Jesper the next day, each believing that they will receive a toy if they send him a letter. Jesper capitalizes on the idea and goes to Klaus with the proposal of donating the toys in his house; Klaus agrees provided that they operate at night, and that Jesper continues to deliver the toys in secret. Soon, more and more children begin writing letters to Klaus. When Jesper tells them that Klaus only gives toys to good children, and always knows when any child misbehaves, the acts of kindness they subsequently perform gradually inspire the rest of the townsfolk to end their ancient disputes, and Alva reopens her school to help the children learn to read and write.
