Editorial Reviews

Returning home from college one Christmas, young artist Thomas Kinkade (Jared Padalecki) is dismayed to learn that attempts to promote local tourism have failed and his mother (Marcia Gay Harden) is dangerously close to losing the family cottage to foreclosure. Inspired by his mentor, Glen (Peter O’Toole), a famous artist who lives next door, Thom accepts a job painting a mural of his small, idyllic hometown. With Glen’s help, Thom not only discovers his calling as the Painter of Light™ but also helps the town rediscover the true spirit of Christmas in this nostalgic, humorous and heartwarming true story destined to become a holiday classic.

Famed painter Thomas Kinkaid had this film made about a very pivotal time of his life. Kept raw as real life tends to be, it is a sad and yet very uplifting film. Topics are deep and moving. This is not meant to be a young children's film, but more a teenage and adult film. Deals with motivations, the things that shape us, those who mold our lives.

While I felt the character of Thomas was not given enough depth to fully utilize Mr. Padalecki's talents, his performance with what he was given was awesome. Several of the supporting characters did super amazing work. Despite the rough language given to Richard Burgi, it was the most amazing piece of acting I have seen from him yet -- the depths of feeling and information in his vulerable moments were totally worth it. Mr. O'Toole also gives a wondrous performnce.

If you want something to touch your heart, see how life chapes people, and just get some of that Christmas feeling flowing -- this movie is for you.

Some weirdos are getting on here saying this is not a family movie due to vulgarity and sensuality. I don't think they saw the same movie I saw. There is more vulgarity and sensuality spending five minutes anywhere outside this movie...walking down a street, at school, tv shows or commercials. Please do yourself a favor and ignore those reviews. You'll be glad and thankful for it. The whole movie has to do with redemption, and God's love, and it has the guts to say so, in a way that I don't think would turn off most non-religious or religious people. This movie is a gem, the acting is excellent, and I am ordering a copy or two for gifts. If you are an aspiring artist, or know someone who is, this movie is a God-send.

I was extremely pleased with this movie. I rented it tonight and enjoyed it so much that I am going to buy it and add it to my ever-expanding roster of Christmas movies. Unlike those who criticize it for lack of typical Christmas fluff, this movie had a raw element that humanized it, therefore making it ENTIRELY believable. I have plenty of "family feel-good" movies and was interested in this movie because it claimed to show how Thomas got his start, which it did. Bravo, Thomas, for having the courage to show the humanity of the townspeople with whom you grew up. A based-on-true-story movie SHOULD show humanity, raw or otherwise. While this isn't a movie that young children would understand, it IS a movie which adults and older teens can relate to. I will watch it every year from now on.

I went to the private premier in Morgan Hill a few months ago. It is a great Christmas movie for the whole family. This movie gives you a peek into Thomas Kinkades life before he became famous. Peter O'Toole gives a great performance as Thom's mentor, the art professor that help Thom and his family. God Bless Thom and his family

I loved this movie. It goes without saying that Peter O'Toole is amazing in his role. His designation as a legend is well-deserved. As a long-time Richard Burgi fan, this is one of his best roles, and he is wonderful in it. And while I've not known Jared Padalecki's work for as long as I've known Richard's, I have a similar admiration for both of them, and their scenes together in this movie are funny and heartbreaking. This is simply a very nice Christmas movie for older children/teens and their parents.

Hands down, this is one of the best movies I've ever seen in my life. Some reviewers have been critical of the fact that it appears to be a "warm fuzzy movie for the family" and yet, it probably is not appropriate for children. There is some foul language (although not out of hand), and there are depictions of smoking, drinking, and cleavage. However, it's all done in the context of illustrating the characters and never feels ugly or obscene. It is not, by any stretch, an obnoxious film as some reviewers seem to have suggested, and it an amazing and "warm fuzzy film" that has so many special moments I can't count them. One feels "opened up" after watching it. However, if one if very religious, skip this offering; there are better for you.

However, if seen simply as a movie without critical regard for counting expletives (which I honestly didn't even notice--am I just deaf, or so ingrained in the culture that I don't even hear it?), this is a powerful, poignant and moving experience which won't leave dry eyes. The music, the profound wisdom about life, art and humanity, and the many many touching scenes put this film in the category of the greats. I think I could watch this film 10 times and still get something out of it. Peter O'Toole is magnificent, and he along with the lady costar who plays the mom have some amazing special moments together--and the music is breathtaking and perfect. There are some scenes with an artist painting, that are so moving and profound.
