_images/_stills/_thumbs/AmberandClayOnSteps.jpg 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 There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God.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.

My Review of ~*Old Fashioned*~ romantic feature film:

From the moment Amber opens the door to the antique store, I absolutely love the inside of the door ~ the certain shade of green that says, "Welcome." An entry, no further... yet; welcoming a new day, new beginnings to celebrate.

Aunt Zella puts things into perspective. I loved her. First, with her Blue Willow teacups, and then her outspoken caring ways that surround Clay with acceptance, counsel, assurance, and searching.

And the children ~ "He knows your giggle, and He knows your name." Yes, He does! First visit to church together, and the children are singing, wholly open.

Learning that you cannot earn to remove guilt of your past, a newness ensures as walls come down and the realization of a Love so pure, given exactly for you.

I am looking forward to reading the book based on the screenplay to recapture the moment and beautiful lines that transpire to freedom.

  1. I have wanted to watch this movie. It sounds good. Thanks for sharing, Kathleen.

    1. Hi Anne,
      What is so superb is that the author is the main actor ~ so he definitely knows what theme, feeling, and self awareness he is delivering. So natural and a story fitting any generation of honor and respect for each other.
      I will be reviewing the book, Old Fashioned, based on the screenplay; and devotional, The Old Fashioned Way: Reclaiming the Lost Art of Romance, later this month.
      I am reminded of Psalm 23:6a ~ "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life..."

  2. I watched this movie and sometimes wonder if there truly is still "Old Fashioned" men out there like this or is it just the workings of writers to delve into a fantasy? Is romance lost amid the garbage our TV's display at the lack of trust, faith, and romance?
