No whips. No chains. No problem.

Hollywood is betting that the release of 50 Shades of Grey, the film adaptation of the sexually tawdry book of the same name, will be a hit with movie-going couples on Valentine’s Day weekend.

Old Fashioned, a faith-based film presenting a more “Godly” view of romance, will open that same weekend but on far fewer screens. The team behind the project is willing to give movie goers a kinder alternative to Grey.

“I wanted to tell a love story that takes the idea of Godly romance seriously,” Rik Swartzwelder, the film’s award-winning writer-director and lead actor, said in a statement. “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.”
