They were known simply as β€œThe Lost Boys.”


Orphaned by the brutal civil war in Sudan, which 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 3,600 lost boys, as well as girls, to America.

In The Good Lie, Philippe Falardeau, (writer and director of the Oscar-nominated Foreign Language film Monsieur Lazhar) brings the story of their survival and triumph to life. Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line) stars alongside Sudanese actors Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal and newcomer, Kuoth Wiel, some of whom were also children of war and lived through traumatic events, not unlike those depicted in the film.
