Aaron's Father


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.

Wonderful Family Film
15 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
