The lost boys of Sudan.

2 years, 4 months ago at Apr 8 20:03
Migration is the part of life for birds and animals for millions of years. For the different season, to be in the different places, away from harsh nature is to comforts from any severeness. Still happening in greater number everywhere except humans who thought enough is enough, let's stay and face the challenges. Wow, that's awesome, the civilization was born. So those who stayed in the different... read more

To be honest, I had no idea what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Reese Witherspoon, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though the damned thing was sold as a Witherspoon vehicle (just check the poster), in fact, she only had a supporting part and the movie was actually dealing with 4 refugees from Sudan.

“To be honest, I had no idea what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Reese Witherspoon, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though the damned thing was sold as a Witherspoon vehicle (just check the poster), in fact, she only had a supporting part and the movie was actually dealing with 4 refugees from Sudan. Furthermore, even though they made it seemed that it was a true story, in fact, it was some fiction based on the tragic history of Sudan and its refugees. As a result, many of the most dramatic events taking place during this movie were actually made up so they could give the whole thing some typical generic Hollywood flavor. Still, even so, I thought it was a decent watch. Indeed, it did help that 3 of the 4 actors were some actual Sudanese refuge” read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2015 (23 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 50min. First Viewing I'm not sure that there's a single original idea in The Good Lie, but the film has enough earnestness and heart that it doesn't really matter. This is a great movie, or even a particularly memorable one, but it flows okay and it isn't overly preachy or condescending, and sometimes that's good enough. "
