Product Description

[Director Christian Vuissa] never ceases to astound me with his ability to keep things real and genuine while paying the kind of attention to detail it takes to keep the audience anxiously engaged. The script, also compliments of Vuissa, is simple and organic while still maintaining a certain charm and authenticity that keeps you smiling when they smile and crying when they cry. — Mariah Proctor, Meridian Magazine

This movie is a stirring representation of LDS life, with motifs ranging throughout the movie. It is a very tasteful and intimate portrayal of what life is for an LDS father and family and a film that both members of the LDS faith and non-members can appreciate. — Jason Sweat, Daily Universe

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.

Inspiring premise, dull execution
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

As another reviewer stated, the most redeeming aspect of this movie was that it was a clean movie. The premise is inspiring-- bringing to light the goodness of a simple, righteous life. It's just that the execution wasn't inspiring. The movie highlighted the reality that there are lives that move along at a fairly even pace with not much fanfare or crisis. Unfortunately, that translated to watching something that didn't draw you in or produce much emotion.

My husband and I struggled to watch the movie to the end and we never watched it again. It was eventually donated.

good description of life changes

*SPOILER ALERT* - one good man...a family is enjoying the simplicity of life then surprise. yes, a father becomes a bishop and we see his changes and the family changing. the daughter making an eternal choice, an honorable son returning home from his mission, a son receiving his mission call, a daughter choosing disobedience and learning the consequences. an elderly sister feeling wanted. a funny friend not understanding life in an LDS home. so many decisions being made. this film shows how families pull together and work together even with the bumps in life. i like how the father helped serve the in laws by staying with them during the sealing ceremony . that would take so much to not be with a child during this but knowing you are serving our Savior by setting an example

Just Sheer Delight

I yearn to give this gem of a movie ten stars. From beginning scenes to the ending scenes, it simply delights. It is so dang well done--funny, great editing, moving, REAL. No pretense, no bad acting. The casting was fabulous.
Proof that LDS Cinema has come into its own:
"Redemption"
"The Errand of Angels"
"Saints and Soldiers"
"Forever Strong"
"The Book of Jer3miah"
"ONE GOOD MAN"
Etc. .....

Great movie that does a pretty good job catching some of the joys and challenges of being an LDS bishop and also the ups and the downs of Mormon families. It really helped us to resolve to do better with our family, callings, life, etc. What a great example to follow!

I was looking foward to watching this movie, but was really disappointed. The story line was okay, but the characters were very flat and the acting was almost painful to watch. This movie really missed the mark for me and my family and we stopped watching halfway through.

A great tribute to good men and fathers everywhere
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

This was a very sweet and touching film: A great tribute to good men and fathers everywhere. The characters and situations were very relateable to me. I’ve had similar things happen to me, my family or friends and it made me feel for the family in the movie. This is another great movie made by the same man who did Errand of Angels which I also love.

Highly Recommended

I've read the other reviews. If green leaves in winter, less-than A-list acting, or inconsistencies such as a Stake President meeting with a prospective bishop without inviting the wife to accompany him would cause you to dismiss a movie as beneath your standards, then don't watch this one. But if you are looking for an authentic, sympathetic portrayal of LDS family life that will uplift and move you, then this is a must-see film. My husband was serving as bishop when we saw this and we laughed and cried and nodded knowingly. Absolutely delightful.

I couldn't agree more... THIS MOVIE WAS FANTASTIC!

I don't expect much from LDS movies anymore, but this one was fab! If only there were more movies like this one, I'd never have to watch non-lds movies ever again!

One good movie

Watched it for the first time last night, was very impressed. Watching the character of Aaron, makes me think about what kind of father I want to be. Not perfect, but just wanting to do the right thing, and the love he had for those around him...wow!

Excellent

Great DVD about a bishop and all the demands and sacrifices required for a man who does not receive pay for his position. Storyline was smooth and thought provoking. Good humor.
