Earnest but not overly sweet attempt to make the case for sexual restraint as the key to putting the rom back in rom-coms. Writer-director Rik Swartzwelder stars as Clay, a former serial seducer now living the life of a hermit while running an Ohio antique shop called Old Fashioned. (The movie is self-conscious about its more on-the-nose aspects, which doesn't help much. It's also self-conscious about the weirdness of the world it espouses, which does.) By the time we meet him, he won't even be in the same room alone with a woman — though he is willing to talk to her through a screen door about his theories on modern dating as a lousy preparation for marriage. The woman in question is Amber (a charming Elizabeth Roberts), a rambler who could use a little reliability in her life, and so indulges Clay's oddities. Christianity is put to sensible use as a refuge for the damaged, and if the Big Fight and Big Speech are a bit convoluted, the overall storyline is clear and even plausible. (2015) — Matthew Lickona
