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 There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God.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.

Old Fashioned DVD
Marty and I enjoy watching DVDs after the kids go to bed. Sometimes, we grab some snacks and pretend we’re on a date – you know that thing you did before you had kids? This month, we chose the Old Fashioned DVD which is subtitled “A retro modern love story” and is all about an old fashioned courtship in today’s modern world.
Clay used to be a quite a player in his college days but he’s given it up to live a life that is more in line with God’s ways. He runs a small antique store now in a small Midwestern town. He’s known in the town for being a bit odd due to his old fashioned theories on love and romance.
Amber is a free spirit who drives from place to place, moving on before she forms attachments or when things become difficult. She drove until she almost ran out of gas and arrived in the same small town that Clay lives in and ended up renting an apartment from him.
Despite her intentions, Amber finds herself attracted to Clay. At first, she thinks his ideas are a bit odd but she starts to understand where he’s coming from and appreciate what he believes in. It will take a lot of effort but they both work toward an old fashioned style courtship to see if they are meant to be.
Marty and I really enjoyed this movie. I could really relate to the two main characters and even the protagonists were very real and believable. It was really easy to get into the movie and believe that this was something that could really happen. I love that the relationship wasn’t all roses and sunshine. It was real with real struggles the way relationships really are. The end left me in tears and my husband enjoyed it as well. Definitely recommend you watch this one.
