Fifty Alternatives to Fifty Shade of Grey

If Fifty Shades isn’t your thing, you’ll be glad to know that you do have some alternatives. One is actually going head to head with Fifty Shades on Valentines Day, but appears to have a theme that is polar opposite. In fact, the latest preview for Old Fashioned actually pokes fun of the darker film.

“This Valentine’s Day,” says the trailer, “leave the door open to two souls who take the time to discover not manipulation but healing.” “Sexy corporate mogul” appears onscreen and a red line strikes through the words. Scenes then contrast the opposing stories: fantasy wealth and a contract to inflict pain  . . . or two down-to-earth, relatable people with failed romances, now finding their way to real love.

The indie film, which has already won a few awards, focuses on a former frat boy who now runs an antique shop in a small midwestern town. A young woman rents the apartment above his shop. He is ultra conservative; she is much more of a free spirit. Both have been hurt from past relationships but somewhere they meet in the middle. It stars Elizabeth Ann Roberts, Rik Swartzwelder and Dorothy Silver.
