Plot summary

What is Klaus movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Klaus" movie plot summary.

Jesper Johansson (Jason Schwartzman), the lazy, spoiled son of the Royal Postmaster General, has been trying to flunk out of the postman academy, but his father sends him to the distant town of Smeerensburg. If Jesper (Yekta Kopan) fails to post 6,000 letters within a year, he will be cut off from his family's fortune. Arriving in the bleak, snowy town of Smeerensburg, Jesper meets ferryman Mogens (Norm MacDonald) and teacher turned fishmonger Alva, who explain that Smeerensburg is home to the perpetually warring Ellingboe and Krum families.
Desperate for letters, Jesper attempts to mail a young Krum boy's drawing. He later visits the reclusive woodsman Klaus and discovers his house is filled with handmade toys, but flees from the imposing woodsman, leaving behind the sad drawing. Klaus forces Jesper to take him to the boy's house and secretly deliver one of his toys. Word spreads to other children, who hope to receive toys by sending Klaus letters. Jesper, eager to collect letters, convinces Klaus to let him deliver more toys. The Krum boy's toy leads him to play with an Ellingboe girl, much to their families' outrage.
The myth of Klaus grows among the town's children as Jesper delivers toys through their chimneys at night, prompting more and more children to write letters to Klaus. Jesper sends those who cannot write to be taught by Alva, who reopens her school with the money she was saving to leave Smeerensburg, and Klaus and Jesper tame a team of reindeer to pull their cart of toys. After Jesper leaves coal in the stocking of a young bully, the boy confronts Jesper, who declares Klaus only gives toys to good children and tracks all of their misbehaviors with a "Naughty List". This leads the children to perform acts of kindness throughout the town, inspiring the townsfolk to end their ancient disputes.
