For "The Good Lie," Academy Award-nominated director Philippe Falardeau ("Monsieur Lazhar") brings to the big screen the story of Sudanese "Lost Boys," escapees from the brutal civil war in Sudan who came to America. Starring Reese Witherspoon and Corey Stoll as the American hosts and Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal, Nyakouth Weil as the Sudanese orphans, "The Good Lie" is slated to hit theaters on October 3.
An October release is, of course, a prime spot for an awards hopeful. Witherspoon has already won an Oscar (for Best Actress in "Walk The Line"), and Stoll earned an Independent Spirit Award nomination for his turn as Ernest Hemingway in "Midnight in Paris." Think this stands a chance of going the distance based on the trailer?
