OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 79 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: Nearly all the children enjoyed "The Christmas Candle" very much. This movie is not likely to hold the attention of young children.
TEENS: The lone male thought it was an average movie. The females all enjoyed it very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The one male rated it above average. Both the females loved "The Christmas Candle."
ADULTS:FANTASTIC REVIEWS! Both males and females LOVED THIS MOVIE! These are exceptionally high reviews for a movie of this type (non-blockbuster). "The Christmas Candle" is a great movie for the entire family this Christmas season (or anytime).


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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.
