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.

I also enjoyed Padalecki's performance. Being so used of seeing him battling on demons and evil monsters (I am a huge fan of the TV show Supernatural), it was amazing to see him being able to perform a lighter genre.
I give this movie a 5 stars, not for being the most outstanding movie of all time, but for a well told story based on true events. I sure wish we could have some sequel, where we could get to see where Kinkade and Nanette finally get together (I loved that one scene where Jared and Tegan are walking in the snow, and the Jared voice over says "That's another story for another time" or something like that).
The mother is in dire straights as she is away from husband who acts like he never grew up. Thomas, as a teenager visits neighbour, Peter O'Toole, who plays a well known artist. Peter is an old man but becomes Thomas's mentor. Through the old artist, Thomas understands "to paint the light" and he paints a huge mural in town of the town.The mother is a very giving person who is well liked throughout the town. The boys find some work to try and help out their mother.
A lovely true meaningful story of a well known artist who saw the light that changed his life. The last scene is the real Kincaid painting one of his beautiful paintings.
This is a made for tv movie and did not live up to my expectations, but then again maybe it was all the trouble I had to go thru in order to watch this movie. Do not recommend.
