A bit dark, in spots, for a movie with the word "Light" in the title, but families with older kids will enjoy it
10 November 2011 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

In the medieval world, evil King Otto (Edward Albert) and his sidekick, Witch Hazel, constantly stirred up trouble. The fairies and elves were in danger quite a bit. Now in twentieth century California, he is still reeking havoc. He inhabits the body of a school administrator and is bent on destroying a beautiful park. At the academy, new student Britta (Danielle Nicolet) is having a very difficult time accepting her parents' death and making new friends. Only handsome Gabe (Christian Oliver) seems to extend a welcome. It is near Christmas and the school is planning a talent show and the winner will receive a $75,000 scholarship. Trouble is, the event has already been rigged by the new King Otto, the champion already chosen. Gabe wants to sing but loses his voice, Otto at work again, and the young man encourages Britta to perform, for she is an extremely talented gymnast. Her grandmother (Carol Lynley) thinks its a good idea, too. But, Britta is most reluctant. Suddenly, an elf from the middle ages helps her gain courage. Will Britta upset Otto's plans? This is a good film for families with older children. It has a nice story and some appealing fantasy elements. That said, Otto and Hazel have ties to witchcraft, something some parents may not like. So, be careful folks. Nicolet is a beautiful and talented star and so is Oliver. How amazing, too, to see Albert, Lynley, and the lovely Lindsay Wagner, who plays a caring teacher at the school. Special effects are really quite nice, as are the costumes, settings, and direction. Therefore, families are encouraged to seek this one out at holiday times, if members have no objections to the darker twists.
