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

The inner child
27 January 2020 | by technicianwarsSee all my reviews

I believe we all have an inner child inside. It is shaped by childhood wounds, and what helps us continue to grow in life. This story is beautiful. The vulnerability David expresses brings him healing. I gave this a 9 for the courage it took to show his struggle and share it with the world. I also wonder about Edward Norton's paternal experiences. It left me crying, too. Thanks, Ed Norton!!!
