Old Fashioned - DVDElizabeth Ann Roberts, Elizabeth Roberts, Lejon Woods, Pure Flix Entertainment LLC, Rik Swartzwelder
Old Fashioned tells the story of Clay Walsh, a former frat boy who gives up his reckless carousing and now runs an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town, where his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance, as well as his devout belief in God have caused him ... Read More
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.

- I Watched It Twice . . . by Julie on 2/8/2017
I first viewed the Netflix DVD of this film on my computer on Monday. On Tuesday night, I popped it into the living room DVD and played it on the much bigger screen and watched it with friends. We're three women, one a 60-something widow, one a 60-something single gal, and one a 70-something divorcee, and all of us, Christians. And you had us at "Hey, pretty girl"!
We thoroughly enjoyed the content, the scripts, the characters, the scenery (glorious!), the simplistic and charming town setting that reminded each of us of our childhood neighborhoods (mine especially, which was Narberth, PA), the music (I now have Scott Krippayne's "While the Days Are Young" song in my Spotify list), and of course the point--the message of it all.
The touches of humor were adorable and made us laugh out loud several times. We chuckled during the first grocery store scene and had tears in our eyes during the final grocery store scene, which was stunningly beautiful and beyond romantic [sigh].
We thought the actors (none of whom we'd known of) and their performances were fabulous. We thought Aunt Zella was a little rough on Clay (our new heartthrob!) but we realized that was out of her love and concern for him to progress, to accept forgiveness, and to walk in grace.
For me, the widow, the story strummed my heartstrings in three ways: I felt wistful to relive my youth and do it better, I felt grateful yet again for the loving, warm, loyal, easy-going husband and marriage God blessed me with, and I miss and yearn for him ever more.
Today is Wednesday. I've put the DVD back in the mail to Netflix, and I'm buying a copy right now from the Family Christian store so I'll have it to enjoy again, either alone or with friends.
I am not a stockpiler of DVDs--probably have only about 20 of films that are my all-time favorites: "Enchanted April" is at the top, followed by "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," "We Bought a Zoo," "Far From the Madding Crowd," "Bottle Shock," and "A Little Chaos," to name a few. Today, "Old Fashioned" became a worthy addition to that very select library.
- A good movie for the singles or non marrieds.. by JEANNIE on 2/1/2016
This was overall a good movie. It wasn't very funny nor did it leave me wanting to watch it again, but it was good overall.

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.
