The Christmas Candle

The Christmas Candle

(2013)

Believe the miracle.

Family Christmas tale starring Hans Matheson (Sherlock Holmes), Samantha Barks (Les Miserables) and singer Susan Boyle, making her feature acting debut. In the English countryside village Gladbury, legend has it every 25 years an angel visits the village candlemaker and touches a single candle. Whoever lights this candle is said to receive a miracle on Christmas Eve. But in 1890, at the dawn of the electric age, this centuries old legend may come to an end.... More

When David (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 (Barks).Hide

  • Has a diligent homeyness and it takes delight in around-the-town bits of business and words like “chasuble” and “codswallop” ... But despite the story’s Christian resonance and Richmond’s Advent sermons, a few swapped words could yield a passable Santa Claus tale. Full Review
