Yesterday afternoon, G-Man and I went to see “THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE.”
On a scale of 0-5 stars, I give it an even 10!
It’s probably the very best Christmas Movie of the Season!
The book the movie was made from was written by Max Lucado. (I ordered the book last night.)
And I saw the script writers/producers on the local news last week, and I believe it said they went to school at Victory Christian School in Tulsa!
That’s why it’s showing in Tulsa now when it opens nation wide on November 22nd. (And Tulsa is very special!) 🙂
I wish I could show you a picture of the village where the story is set. I want to visit! (Whether it’s real or not.)
The story was great, the acting fantastic, and best of all was Susan Boyle, the singer. Oh, my stars! God gave that woman a great talent. It was wonderful to hear her sing! Worth the price of admittance just to listen to her.
One man who has a pivotal role in the movie looked so familiar. He isn’t on the website http://thechristmascandlemovie.com but I looked him up on IMDB. Here he is–
He’s Rachel Weisz’s brother in “The Mummy.” In “The Christmas Candle,” he’s a man, dying with consumption who’s not worried about himself. He’s concerned about his nephew who doesn’t speak and his daughter who has lost her faith.
He does such a good job, I felt like I knew him. Or should know him.
The Christmas Candle is a beautiful, very well made movie with Christian values. I love having movies like this available and want to support them as often as I can.
I want to buy the video as soon as it’s available so I can watch it every year. It’ll be another one of my Christmas Traditions!
