Candles on Bay Street

Why We're Feeln It

Based on the bestseller by K.C. McKinnon, this touching film stars Alicia Silverstone as Dee Dee, a single mom and professional candlemaker who returns home to Maine with her twelve-year-old son Trooper after a lengthy absence. Matthew Knight won a Young Artist Award for his portrayal of Trooper, and Annabeth Gish is terrific as the jealous wife of Sam, Dee Dee's childhood friend who once had a crush on her. As time goes by, Dee Dee's true motive for returning is revealed, and the redemptive powers of friendship and trust ultimately shine bright.


Sam and Lydia have a great marriage. They're committed to each other, to their veterinary practice, and to their tight-knit northern Maine community. But when Sam's old high school flame comes back to town after a lengthy absence, it's a time of tension for everybody.
Nobody knows why has Dee Dee (Alicia Silverstone), now a single mom, has come home. But the answer lies at the core of this story, which is based on the bestselling novel of the same name.
