Religious 'Old Fashioned' Looks to Fight 'Fifty Shades of Grey' on 2015 Valentine's Day


The movie directed by Rik Swartzwelder portrays a clean version of the Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson romance.

Moviegoers who are not into kinky romance of "Fifty Shades of Grey" are given an alternative to watch for their Valentine's Day movie date next year. A faith-based romantic drama titled "Old Fashioned" has booked that date, ultimately facing off the S&M flick which is due February 13 in the U.S.

"We know we're picking a fight here and that we're more than a little outgunned," said Rik Swartzwelder. "Oh well, it is what it is. We have to try..." He is the director, the writer and the main star of the religious movie that come from Freestyle Releasing, the studio behind Christian movie "God's Not Dead".

Swartzwelder compared his movie to the Sam Taylor-Johnson-directed pic on his blog, "One is a modestly budgeted indie flick that seeks to make room for godly romance in contemporary America. The other is a multi-million dollar studio film based on a best-selling erotic novel that has... other goals in mind."

"I wanted to tell a love story that takes the idea of Godly romance seriously," Swartzwelder explained. "A story that, without apology, explores the possibility of a higher standard in relationships; yet, is also fully aware of just how fragile we all are and doesn't seek to heap guilt upon those of us that have made mistakes."

Swartzwelder plays a former frat boy who falls for a free-spirited woman portrayed by Elizabeth Ann Roberts. The pair dates in an old-fashioned courtship, meaning no sex as the tagline puts it, "Chivalry is making a comeback."

Meanwhile, "Fifty Shades of Grey" stars bigger names like Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. It revolves around a young billionaire Christian Grey who pursues an innocent college girl Anastasia Steele and brings her into his BDSM world.
