When a pastor is shaken by the visible faith of a street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a journey that impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate.
Clay, a small town antique store owner trying to leave his shame behind, rents the apartment above his store to a wandering girl. Elizabeth travels from town to town until her gas tank is empty, never staying long enough to make a real connection. As she gets to know her reticent landlord, a courtship develops. Clay goes slow and Elizabeth tries to push, and everyone wonders why he's so determined to be difficult. The real question is whether these two people can endure an old fashioned romance in a modern world. Along the way we learn about both their pasts and meet some of the people who have influenced them, for better or worse. We see some of the challenges of modern romance and dating. Written by

You don't believe that there's a right person out there for each of us? A soul mate?
I don't believe that our job is in looking. It's in becoming. Once you are the right person... when you're ready... you know? Then hopefully, God willing...

I saw Old Fashioned at a "sneak peek" event in Florida and was pleasantly surprised. The scenery is just beautiful and really adds to the tender, rustic feel of the whole story. And the story itself is profoundly moving. The relationship between the two main characters is something that really resonated with me. I loved the chemistry between the two characters (Clay and Amber) and found things in both that are just like me. Amber is just adorable and I'd like to find a guy like Clay in the real world. I also loved the subtle nature of this "faith-based" film. It definitely affirmed my faith and my struggles to live as a godly, single person; but, it did so without hitting me over the head with religion (so many "faith-based" films seem to treat the audience like they're idiots! We get it, already!) This isn't just a good "faith-based" film, it's a good (even if a little slow) indie film -- period. I've never seen a film quite like it.
