Well, crumb . . . I just realized this post got stuck in my drafts. Boo! While it's not at the theaters anymore, it would still make a great date night rental!
I posted a few days ago and shared some of my concerns about the movie Fifty Shades of Grey. I decided I needed to do more than simply discourage people from seeing a movie that has no redeeming qualities and needed to put my money where my mouth was. So Hubs and I cast our vote for positive, uplifting, clean, godly films by going to see Old Fashioned on Valentine's Day. I wanted to be sure to share my thoughts on the movie with y'all, so maybe you'll be encouraged to do the same!
About the Movie
A romantic-drama, OLD FASHIONED centers on Clay Walsh, a former frat boy who gives up his reckless carousing and now runs an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town. There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God. When Amber Hewson, a free-spirited young woman with a restless soul, drifts into the area and rents the apartment above his shop, she finds herself surprisingly drawn to his strong faith and noble ideas, which are new and intriguing to her. And Clay, though he tries to fight and deny it, simply cannot resist being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Ultimately, Clay must step out from behind his relational theories and Amber must overcome her own fears and deep wounds as the two of them, together, attempt the impossible: an "old-fashioned" and God-honoring courtship in contemporary America.
