Although a great film in message, this film does take the name of the Lord in vain, so I can’t recommend it for that reason along.
The Good Lie
Miracles are made by people who refuse to stop believing.
They were known simply as “The Lost Boys” Orphaned by the brutal Civil war in Sudan that began in 1983, these young victims traveled as many as a thousand miles on foot in search of safety.
Fifteen years later, a humanitarian effort largely led by churches would bring 3,600 lost boys and girls to America.
In “The Good Lie,” Philippe Falardeau, brings the story of their survival, faith and triumph to life. Sudanese actors Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal, and newcomer Nyakuoth Weil, many of whom were also children of war, star alongside Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon and Corey Stoll.
“The Good Lie,” an upcoming film that tells the story of “the Lost Boys” of Sudan who flee the country after civil war breaks out has a new trailer for faith-based viewers.
The film stars Academy Award Winning Actress Reese Witherspoon and focuses on the journey of Christian Sudanese refugees from their homeland to America. It documents their plight when fleeing from persecution, uses Christian themes to communicate the story and displays the difficulty when they attempt to blend in with American culture.
Witherspoon’s character is based a real woman who took in four Sudanese boys during the conflict. “The Good Lie” also stars “House of Cards” actor Corey Stoll. The new trailer is geared towards a faith-based audience and highlights some of the Christian elements in the film.
