The Polar Express

A boy experiences doubt in Santa after his younger sister brings it up, and he falls asleep on Christmas Eve with this question in mind. His thoughts materialize in a dream led by the conductor of the Polar Express train who resembles his father. Both his mind and the events of the Polar bound train travel the ups and downs twists and turns of the idea of what is necessary for belief. We witness the child of strength and the child of noncommittal, along with joys and distraction of his Christmas Eve dream. What present do you take with you?

Hero Boy: At one time most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. And though I've grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.



During the scene when the Polar Express slides across the ice and the conductor is telling the train controllers to head for the tracks, the distance between the train and the tracks keeps changing.



The voice of Hero Boy's mother and sister are done by director Robert Zemeckis' wife, Leslie.
