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 brings the story of their survival and triumph to life.
The Good Lie comes to theaters October 3rd, 2014 and stars Reese Witherspoon, Corey Stoll, Sarah Baker, Thad Luckinbill, Mike Pniewski, Maria Howell, Sharon Morris, Joshua Mikel. The film is directed by Philippe Falardeau.
