‘The Christmas Candle’ ~ In Theaters Friday, November 22 ~
Watch Opening Weekend
The Christmas Candle – is a timeless and inspirational story based on the novel by bestselling author, Max Lucado.
Deep in the heart of the English countryside lies the enchanting village of Gladbury. Legend has it every 25 years an angel visits the village candlemaker and touches a single candle. Whoever lights this candle receives a miracle on Christmas Eve. But in 1890, at the dawn of the electric age, this centuries old legend may come to an end.
When David Richmond (Hans Matheson), a progressive young minister, arrives in Gladbury, the villagers discover a new formula for miracles: good deeds and acts of kindness. While David’s quest to modernize Gladbury sets him at odds with the old world candlemaker, he finds an unlikely ally in the lovely skeptic, Emily Barstow (Samantha Barks). Now, the fiery candlemaker must fight to preserve the legacy of the Christmas Candle. But when the candle goes missing, the miraculous and human collide in the most astonishing Christmas the village of Gladbury has ever seen.
CFDb had the privilege of taking part in a conference call about this up-coming movie and we are REALLY looking forward to watching this movie in the theater opening weekend!
The Next Christmas Classic?
People who have reviewed this film expect it to become the next Christmas Classic, similar to, ‘It’s a Wonderful Life‘.
It was an interesting story from Max Lucado on where this story originated and how Susan Boyle was chosen for this film as well.
There was even a story told about one of the cast members who was impacted by a quote from the film, “Be the Miracle”, and it caused this cast member to do the right thing and help someone in need, even though it was inconvenient.
We believe this will be a great film –
