“Old Fashioned” on DVD today!
Movie opens with Clay Walsh working in his antique shop repairing a chair. We also meet Amber Hewson who drives into Clay’s town and stops because she ran out of gas. Amber is often running away from bad relationships. Clay who was a former frat boy, bad boy, has turned to wanting to be old fashion. When Amber walks into his store wanting to rent the apartment above him Clay doesn’t know what to do. He finds her attractive but he doesn’t want to fall into his old ways. Amber soon learns that Clay is a bit different. He refuses to enter her apartment while she is in it. He says he made a vow to not be alone with a women that is not his wife.
The movie follows how Amber learns a different type of dating and man. And Clay learns to forgive his past and learns to open himself up to getting to know someone else. This was a cute romantic movie. I found myself hoping they would fall in love and get married. I was also hoping that Clay would see that his past was his past. God had forgiven him, now it was time to forgive himself and allow himself to be truly loved. I also hoped that Amber would know that not all guys are bad, that some can be gentle and loving without having any physical touch.
I loved this movie. It’s a great “chick-flick” that even my husband enjoyed watching with me. I think this movie should be watched by teens in a youth group setting. It would help them understand what a true relationship should look like. I also think couples dating, engaged or married would benefit from learning to respect each other and learn that a relationship isn’t all about kissing and touching.
I’m currently reading the book that is based off the screen-play and the devotional. My reviews for these will be up in a few weeks, as well as a giveaway for all three- dvd, book and devotional. I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you.
