What would it be like to be forced to leave your country and enter into a new one where the language, the culture, and basically everything is unfamiliar? That’s the question tackled by “The Good Lie” a new film in theater’s this weekend. The movie follows three young men who are refugees from Sudan in the United States, their journey to find work and make something of themselves, and their friendship with a young woman who helps them along the way.
The movie is based on the real life stories the “Lost Boys of Sudan”, thousands of men and women who fled the country to the US. While there are some rough edges related to violence and alcohol use, but for the most part, it’s a feel good film that makes you smile and care about those trying to find a new life and thanking God for His blessings as well. Bob gave it 3 1/2 out of 5 for family friendliness. Listen to our conversation below, and you can check out the full review at the Plugged In website.
