Aaron Young is a good man. But even good men can be put to the test. Just when it seems his life can't get more complicated, it does. Pressures with his job are reaching the breaking point, one daughter is struggling to find herself, and another has found a fiancé - complete with future in-laws who are anything but supportive. To top it all off, Aaron has been called to be the bishop of his ward. At this pivotal point in his life, Aaron wonders if anything he does helps the people closest to him. A warm and deeply moving film about the choices and complications of everyday life, ONE GOOD MAN is the story of an unsung hero trying to do the right thing, regardless of the consequences.

    This film captures something about the struggles of daily living in a way that is really inspiring. It reminds me a lot of the film "Avalon" in that the touching moments come on slowly but with impact and they are touching because they are based on basic, familial experiences that most families go through.

    It is also always refreshing to watch a Mormon film that doesn't feel like a "Mormon film", has real artistic direction and doesn't alienate the non-Mormon viewer with tons of "insider" references that go unexplained. It wasn't overly-didactic or cheesy either even though it had a lot of good messages in it. The film had a really nice flow to it, great acting and it was really beautiful visually. Overall, it was a good, solid film and I think that diverse audiences would relate to it and find it very enjoyable.

    If you are anybody who gives a hoot about the wellbeing of your family, you are not so different from the people who made this film. You can tell by the trailer alone that this dram/com film, though not made on a blockbuster budget (it didn't need one) has quality and heart. You may be a naysayer to films that come out of Utah, but seriously, give this one a shot. Don't let silly prejudice or unfair judgment hold you back. The production quality is superb. There is no language, sexual content or violence. So basically, you don't have to shield your eyes, cover you ears or feel sick to your stomach when you leave the theater. It's something you can watch with everyone in your family.

    I loved this movie. I served for a time as a bishop, so I could very closely relate to many of his experiences. I loved the celebration here of goodness. He loves his family, cares of his friends, and cares for the members of his ward in his new calling. I did find myself asking where his counselors were in all his visits, but that is a minor point. I watched it alone the first time, and I can't wait until I can sit down and watch it again with my wife and family. I love how Christian Vuissa doesn't try to overdo it, and stays within the bounds of a real story with no over the top experiences. It is an everyday film, done beautifully. Thanks again Christian.
