Old Fashioned Movie Review

About the movie:
DVD Releases on June 16, 2015
115 minutes // Genre: Drama // Rating PG-13 

 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 There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God.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 Thoughts
I really had no idea what to expect from this movie. It has a lot of good reviews but I thought it was just a movie for people who are dating. I was wrong. I've been thinking about this film since the last scene played. I think this storyline is one to make the watcher think not shove certain views into your face. The acting is very good and I thought it was really well made. Clay and Amber both have a lot of dirty laundry in their past and I liked seeing how Clay had become a changed man but was friends with people who obviously hadn't changed. A lot of tough topics are brought up and the movie leaves it to the viewer to really decide your own opinion. The movie is rated PG-13 and I would say that is valid and teens and older should watch. This is a good movie for people in a relationship or single-either way I think it's worth a watch.
