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
"I don't believe our job is the looking, it's the becoming. Once we are the right person..." Clay, Old Fashioned. In the world today, so much emphasis is put on what another person can do for us or give to us in a relationship, and not what we can do or give to the other person. We seek romantic relationships to fill a void in our life. But the sad truth is, unless we are whole in ourselves, we will be sorely disappointed when the other person comes up short. None of us are perfect, but if we seek to become who we want to find in another person, that would be a match made in heaven! Like Lucky Chucky said, "There are no knights in shining armor, but you think you're Cinderella, don't you?" What a beautiful world it would be where all the "knights" were truly knights and all the "Cinderellas" were truly Cinderellas. I love that this movie focuses on the journey of becoming a person who is whole, and that we become whole by the grace of God. Everyone makes mistakes, but we don't have to stay there! Clay made mistakes that haunted him, but he was able to move past them and accept God's forgiveness and forgive himself. It's a journey. It's many small steps in the right direction. The biggest truth in this movie, which I shared with my kids, is..."a lot of the boundaries that used to be common, that we've thrown away, were there to protect us. We don't have to go around using each other, hurting each other. It doesn't have to be that way." This is not unrealistic or impossible. It just takes discipline. And like Clay said (paraphrased), self-discipline makes for a better character trait in making a marriage work than being experienced in bed. How beautiful it would be to offer "everything" to your spouse on your wedding day and not just "what's left". I have watched this movie at least 4 times. I get something new out of it every time. As a woman, I think the world needs many more "Clays".
