Storyline

David the filmmaker is 40 years old, but he still doesn't feel like a man - not a real man anyway. When his wife becomes pregnant with a boy, David's manhood insecurities deepen. How can he bring his son into manhood if he feels so estranged from his own? This question sets him off on a quest for his manhood that leads him from voice lessons to a men's group to deer-hunting, and ultimately back to his own father. My Own Man is an intimate, humorous, and emotional account of one man's search for what it means to be a man and a father in the 21st century. Written by Anonymous

not often do I get a glimpse of my own life in a doc
6 March 2015 | by guyrabSee all my reviews

this movie left me crying. It bares a lot of similarities with my life. I wrote the letter to my father when I was 21. I imagine a lot of people with an extreme type A, workaholic dad should be able to identify with the story here... and then some. it's about feelings. it's about who you are. it's about a father and a child. it's about not being afraid to try different things. it's about being true to yourself, even if you're a late bloomer. The Ed Norton bit, makes me wonder about the relations Ed had with his father. I have a hunch he can also identify with what's being told here. after all he's the producer of the movie.
