About The Event
Synopsis: 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 candle maker 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.
Review: This whimsical Christmas tale warms the heart and delights the eyes! A young minister named David struggles with his faith after a family tragedy. This story takes place quite some time ago and the long dresses and old horses and carriages add to the visuals. The movie has a definite authentic feel to it.
This terrific movie features Susan Boyle as a singer and actress and she does a remarkable job. We are pleased to award this fabulous movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. We encourage everyone to go see “A Christmas Candle” and believe you will want to light one yourself when you’re done.
