In this fact-based drama, a young Sudanese War refugee wins a lottery that allows him to start a new life in the United States.
But adapting to his new home presents challenges, both for the "lost boy" and for the American woman who's helping him.
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. Thirteen years later, a humanitarian effort would bring 3600 lost boys and girls to America.
The Good Lie brings the story of their survival and triumph to life.
Cast includes Sudanese actors, two of whom were child soldiers in the Sudan. Cast also includes Reese Witherspoon. Directed by Philippe Falardeau (Monsieur Lazhar).
