NOW SHOWING at the affordable VARSITY THEATRE — “The Good Lie” (Rated PG-13)
They were known simply as “The Lost Boys.”
Orphaned by the brutal Civil war in Sudan that 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 3600 lost boys and girls to America.
“The Good Lie” opens as a handful of teenage villagers begin their trek from war torn Sudan to a refugee camp in Kenya. Here they hope to be chosen by an American charity for relocation to America. After many years in the camp it is the good fortune of Mamere (Arnold Oceng), Jeremiah (Ger Duany) and Paul (Emmanuel Jal) to be chosen for relocation to Kansas where they experience culture shock and tragedy as their sister Abital (Kuoth Wiel) is sent to Boston.
Upon arrival in America, they are greeted by Carrie (Reese Witherspoon) who will help them find jobs and much more. Beautiful African scenery interwoven with moments of high drama and leavened with just the right amounts of humor make this a film one and all are sure to enjoy.
