Set in Sudan and the united states, Director Philippe Falardeau’s The Good Lie follows the journey of Sudanese refugees given the chance to resettle in America, away from civil war in their home country.

Carrie, a feisty, strong and fiercely independent employment agency counsellor, played by Reese Witherspoon is one of the first people they meet when they arrive in the US, and you’ll be glad they did.

This is a beautiful, dramatic and humorous tale about friendship, survival, sacrifice, and family. There’s a chance that The Good Lie will have you reflecting upon the true value of unexpected kindness from perfect strangers.

For those yet to see The Good Lie, I’m excited for you to find out how the title is touched upon in the telling of this beautiful story. the two songs at the end are sublime!

Happy The Good Lie 🙂
