The movie poster for "The Good Lie" features a smiling Reese Witherspoon, front and center."The Good Lie" tells a fascinating story, that of the so-called "Lost Boys" (and girls) of Sudan, youngsters orphaned by the bitter war that engulfed their country beginning in 1983, forcing many to trek for hundreds and hundreds of miles – over several years in some cases – to safety. The film begins in a southern Sudan village, where two brothers, Theo and Mamere, and their sister, Abital, suddenly find themselves orphans when attackers come rampaging through, killing anyone in sight.Actor-rapper Emmanuel Jal, who plays his talented but troubled friend Paul, was a child soldier during the war, and like many war orphans, doesn't know when he was born.
