the christmas candle

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.

The Chistmas Candle is directed by John Stephenson (Five Children and It) and stars Hans Matheson (Clash of the Titans, Sherlock Holmes), Samantha Barks (Les Miserables) and Lesley Manville (Another Year, Vera Drake). Also starring are Sylvester McCoy (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Doctor Who), John Hannah (The Mummy, Four Weddings and A Funeral) and Barbara Flynn (Miss Potter, The Borgias) with James Cosmo (Braveheart, Game of Thrones) and introducing Susan Boyle.

The film will open in theaters November 22, 2013. For more information on The Christmas Candle click here.
