One on One (2012) is a short Superman fan film written & directed by Jake Thomas for Benchtree Pictures. Starring Erin Brown and John Nagle.

Sarah, a runaway teenager in the city of Metropolis, encounters a persistent newspaper reporter named Clark Kent who won’t leave her alone until she agrees to an interview for his newspaper column. Ten questions — that’s all he asks. In their moments together, the fragments of her tragic life emerge, but her anger towards superheroes and Superman himself explodes in full force. If he is so great and so powerful, why is the world such a horrible place? Why doesn’t he do something about it?

Not rated. 11:22 run time.

My thoughts… One on One is an amazingly subtle superhero film! Superman might not be able to save the entire world with superhuman strength but maybe he can save some of us with human compassion. One on One is the best Superman movie I’ve ever seen! It’s well-written, well-acted, and wonderfully heartwarming!
