Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture.

Thumbs up! That’s the word from USA Today on Rene Gutteridge’s  novelization of Old Fashioned which has been released in advance the upcoming faith-themed film on Valentine’s Day.  The romantic drama  starring young Robert Redford lookalike Rik Swartzwelder (who also wrote, directed and produced) will be going up against the highly-hyped movie version of the S&M-laden Fifty Shades of Grey, which, of course, can offers a far different  view of a relationship between a man and a woman.

Swartzwelder’s Skoche Films, meanwhile, has just released a new trailer.
