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 is a sweet movie. I think it showed a typical Mormon family very well, with all of the events happening at once. It also showed the influence of a good dad, the role of a bishop and the heaviness of that stewardship.

  • Becki

    This movie is a good example of how busy our lives can get and how important it is to make sure that we spend time with those who matter most to us. Also, his love and concern for those around him not just in his family but those of his ward and work.

    If there was ever a movie that depicted real life, this seems to be it for me. I could put myself in this story and relate to it very well. Aaron Young seems to be hit with every possible struggle at the same time. His family needs him, his church needs him, and work needs him. Somehow, he manages to find the time to fulfill their needs. He becomes bishop and spends time with the widow in the nursing home. He has children that need his attention, and he spends the time with them that they need. He has members of his congregation that need him. He never gives up and he never looses hope. Even when everything seems to be piling on at the same time, he still fights through it. Step by step, piece by piece. I liked watching how things just fell into place even when you couldn’t figure out how they would. God was involved and in all the details.

    We enjoyed this movie. He is a good man. He loved his family, worked hard at his job, gave his all to his calling, but the really amazing thing happened at the end when he made a really big sacrifice to show someone love. It was cool to watch the impact that had on the people he served. I also loved that his action did not come as a surprise as you got to know his good heart throughout the movie. I also liked how simple the things were that added up to make him worthy of the title one good man. He was faithfully fulfilling his stewardships, he wasn’t doing anything super spectacular. Being a good man, is just the small daily faithfulness adding up to help you be prepared in the big moments.
