Old Fashioned, the anti-50 shades

06.27.15 | Sonny Delfyette

Sonny chats with Rik Swartzwelder in this podcast. Rick not only wrote the movie Old Fashioned, but he also directed and starred in it as the lead character. The film centers on Clay Walsh (Rik Swartzwelder, Illuminarium), a former frat boy who gives up his carousing ways 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 There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance. When Amber Hewson (Elizabeth Ann Roberts, World’s End), 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 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” courtship in contemporary America.

“With the film release of OLD FASHIONED, I wanted to tell a love story that takes the idea of Godly romance seriously and spark some meaningful conversations about love and romance,” said director and star Rik Swartzwelder. “We believe the DVD release will keep that conversation going, and hopefully, help bring a measure of additional healing and wholeness to those who my still carry wounds or guilt from previous romantic relationships.”
