THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE
 BELIEVE THE MIRACLE
If you're in the prefestive mood and are preparing your spirit for holidays this November, you can watch THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE which hits cinemas November 23rd starring Hans Matheson, Samantha Barks, John Hannah, Lesley Manville... Deep in the heart of the English countryside lies the enchanting village of Gladbury. Legend has it every twenty-five years an angel visits the village candle maker and touches a single candle. Whoever lights the Christmas 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. British singing sensation Susan Boyle makes her movie debut with this big screen adaptation of Max Lucado novel. 


A CASE OF YOU
JUSTIN LONG, BRENDAN FRASER
And if a bit of delightful romance is what you need this late Autumn, you have A CASE OF YOU premiering November 6th! Young writer Sam (Justin Long) has a crush on Birdie (Evan Rachel Wood), the cute and quirky barista at his local coffee shop. When his conventional attempts to woo her crash and burn, he takes his efforts online, creating an Internet profile embellished with all of the details that would make him Birdie’s dream guy: ballroom dancing, rock climbing, a seemingly endless, escalating series of wacky and unlikely hobbies. When the harebrained scheme is a surprise success and Birdie falls for his exaggerated alter ego, Sam must keep up the act or lose his dream girl forever. Brendan Fraser, Vince Vaughn and Sienna Miller also star.


LE WEEK-END
JIM BROADBENT, LINDSAY DUNCAN
Reigniting the spark in the city of light, that is what happens in the deeply charming trailer for LE WEEK-END, a heartwarming, delightfully lovely British comedy drama which opens up in BritishAmerican cinemas November 1st! Always amazing Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan play a British couple who return to Paris for their 30th wedding anniversary. They are confronted with the difficulties that have been brewing over the long years of their marriage. But the magic of the French city will eventually remind them why they love each other and will ignite the sparks in their hearts again.Jeff Goldblum also stars in the film helmed by NOTTING HILL's director. Goldblum plays their friend who gives them a new vision on life and helps them revitalize their love.


ABOUT TIME
DOMHNALL GLEESON, BILL NIGHY
Another romantic story coming from LOVE ACTUALLY director Richard Curtis is ABOUT TIME which opens up in cinemas November 11th.  The film follows young Tim Lake Brendan's charismatic son Domhnall Gleeson) who makes a startling discovery: Upon turning 21 years of age, Tim is told by his father (Bill Nighy) that all the men in his family have the ability to travel through time. While he can't change events in world history, he can alter what has happened in his own life, so he decides to use this gift to find a girlfriend. When he meets the insecure Mary (wimpy Rachel McAdams), they fall in love, only to have a time-travel mishap completely erase their first meeting, causing Tim to try and make her fall for him again and again.


PHILOMENA
JUDI DENCH, STEVE COOGAN
And HOLLYWOOD SPY's favourite movie this year - powerful and deeply touching, but also inspiring drama PHILOMENA also premieres November 27th! Based on the book "The Lost Child of Philomena Lee" the film focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock — something her Irish-Catholic community didn't have the highest opinion of — and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn't allow for any sort of inquiry into the son's whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.

    1. LOL, that is delightful, Ella :) Nobody in my family reads my books either, they wouldn't even know a single title of any of the 30 books I've done so far....

  4. I usually never watch heartwarming movies except for Christmas or if my sister wants to go to the cinema. The Judi Dench one looks good though.

    1. yes, sadly, we live in a morbid world in which people don't appreciate heartwarming and positive movies because this irresponsible modern world prefers gore, violence and gritty darkness. It is something HOLLYWOOD SPY will always fight against even if we remain the last bastions of warmth and positivity.
