Watch: Reese Witherspoon Helps Refugees in 'The Good Lie' Trailer
"You're being asked to make choices no one should have to make." Warner Bros has also premiered a trailer for a movie titled The Good Lie, a heartwarming, inspirational story about a women who takes in three Sudanese refugees and helps them find their way in America. Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon stars as Carrie Davis, a "straight-talking American woman" who helps three Sudanese orphan "lost boys" figure out their way after moving to America. This looks like your usual, uplifting Hollywood flick, but maybe there's more to it. Corey Stoll co-stars as well, and the three guys are all young actors from Sudan. Take a look.
Here's the first official trailer for Philippe Falardeau's The Good Lie, in high def from Apple:
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 would bring 3600 lost boys and girls to America. In The Good Lie, Philippe Falardeau (writer/director of Oscar-nominated film Monsieur Lazhar) brings the story of their survival 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. Warner Bros will release The Good Lie in theaters on October 3rd in the fall. Interested?
