Storyline

DeeDee returns to her hometown with her 11 year old son, Trooper, 13 years after she ran off with her boyfriend. Her childhood best friend, Sam, is now married and he and his wife, Lydia, are the town's veterinarians. Lydia is a little wary about DeeDee after Sam tells her that they were best friends growing up and DeeDee was his first crush. But DeeDee and Trooper find their way into many hearts of the townspeople with their sweet helpfulness and friendships. DeeDee sets up a candle making business in town square and invites many of the ladies of the town to weekly candle making parties, and through these parties she and Lydia become good friends. One evening after dinner with Lydia and Sam, DeeDee tells Sam she's very sick and she doesn't have much longer to live and she needs his help to find a good family in town to adopt Trooper. Sam later tells Lydia everything and they decide to adopt Trooper themselves if/when something happens to DeeDee. Written by baylormoviechic

Candles on Bay Street, get out the Kleenex
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Hallmark "to be classic"! This movie was a tear jerker from the minute Dee Dee said she went back and forth to Boston. You knew then, what was happening. I cried from then on. Alicia Silverstone is phenomenal in this movie, by far the best acting shes done!! Alicia had the Julia Roberts effect, completely captivating the watchers with her genuinely heartfelt feeling of her characters personality.Matthew Knight played the character of Trooper, and did an awesome job, expect more from this little guy, who's no stranger to acting. All the actors in this movie were very touching, getting the point across. Buy stock in Kleenex for this one!!
