“Old Fashioned” hitting theaters on Valentine’s Weekend is a contemporary romantic drama where chivalry makes a comeback. The faith-based film asks the timely question: Can a couple committed to respect make it in today’s hook-up dating scene? All this as “Fifty Shades of Grey” grabs headlines.
Just say no to control and dominance. Real love happens as mutual attraction factors in mutual respect—which “Old Fashioned” makes both entertaining and uplifting.
From writer, director, producer and star Rik Swartzwelder, an award-winning filmmaker in his feature debut, the movie also stars Elizabeth Ann Roberts (Criminal Minds, Southland, CSI).
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 There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God.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.
Forget the whips and chains and look for true romance when “Old Fashioned” in a theater near you.
