Love is Patient, Love is Kind, Love is Old Fashioned

Old Fashioned

I'm so excited to be partnering up with the producers of a great new movie about love, marriage, courtship, and deep emotional healing. The movie Old Fashioned will be released on Valentine's Day, going up against 50 Shades of Grey, which unfortunately promises to be a behemoth at the box office. Old Fashioned features a slow-talking Southern fraternity boy trying to make up for his misspent college years and a girl who talks like a free spirit but is really lost and aching inside. Their courtship, although mocked by almost everyone around them, eventually makes them whole again.

Other partners committed to spreading the word about this movie, which actually models a healthy relationship (imagine that!), include the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops For Your Marriage initiative, Theology of the Body Evangelization Team (TOBET), and The movie's endorsers read like a Who's Who list of Catholic personalities, including Sr. Helena Burns, Fr. Mike Schmitz, Teresa Tomeo, Matt Fradd, Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle, Lisa Hendey, Sarah Reinhard, and Patrick Novecosky. Old Fashioned is also endorsed by the co-host of the 700 Club and folks from (remember Soul Surfer? my daughters sure do). It's thrilling to be one of their number.

If this movie is playing in your area, please, please go to see it opening week. And take your teen-age kids, if you have them. You won't regret it.

  1. This looks very sweet :-) I am not a fan of going to the movies, but I may make an exception for this one.
