Product Description(Movie only)
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 There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God.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.
It is about time something like this has been released. What a refreshing and amazing DVD. Everyone seems so busy these days and into the next new techie gadget but the “good ole days” weren’t so bad. I have talked about missing many of the ideals from the past and chivalry is one of them. With teen pregnancy and divorce rates there is clearly something wrong with the way things are going. We are raising our children up to be godly adults and I want my daughter to find a guy with these ideals and I am afraid it is going to be hard to do and I hope she has the patients and determination to wait. I also am raising my two gentlemen up to be these kind of men and I hope they find godly wives. This movie wasn’t just a boring, easy to determine what happens next kind of movie. There is a lot of drama and past lives and roller coaster emotions that made it just a phenomenal movie! There was one part in the movie that had me concerned for a few moments when Clay’s friend was having a bachelor party before his wedding and some guys at the party had hired a stripper to come over. The music started and she undid a couple buttons and I was about to turn it off when Clay interrupted and put a stop to it. I should have known better because every movie I have watched from Pure Flix has been family friendly. Pure Flix makes amazing movies. It is rated PG-13 for some thematic events. I was in tears watching the previews of what’s to come this summer and in the fall. Here is the movie trailer. The Novelization and Devotional follow this giveaway.

About the novelization: Softcover; 303 pages
Turning his back on his reckless lifestyle, former frat boy Clay Walsh has settled down to turn an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town….and to purse lofty and outdated theories on love and romance. But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay can’t help being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Amber also finds herself surprisingly drawn to Clay, but his ideas about relationships are unusual to say the least, and they bring to light her own deep wounds and fears about love. They say opposites attract, but can Clay and Amber move beyond their differences and their pasts to attempt an “old fashioned” courtship?

Contrary to popular opinion, being “old fashioned” doesn’t mean you’re dull or unromantic. In fact, a true old fashioned relationship can be more exciting and romantic than anything you’ve ever experienced! So what does it mean to do things the old fashioned way?
