The Good Lie Releases to Blu-Ray and DVD on December 23



It's my good fortune to have been asked by Grace Hill Media to do a give-away (details of how to enter the drawing to win in Monday's post) in celebration of the release of The Good Lie on Blu-Ray and DVD. 

The movie tells the true-life story of the Lost Boys of Sudan, their lives torn apart by civil war, left to grow up in refugee camps, then given the opportunity through the efforts of church groups and other charities to embark on new lives in the U.S. It stars Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon and some actual former Lost Boys in pivotal roles. 

When it was released in theaters in October, reviewers described it with words like “terrific,” “uplifting,” “moving,” “life-changing,” “unforgettable” “brilliant,” “entertaining” and “joyful.” Perhaps even more impressive, though, is that audiences polled by Cinemascore, the industry standard for gauging filmgoer opinions, rated THE GOOD LIE an “A+” – just the 53rd movie in the last 30 years to receive that honor.

I haven't seen the film, but it sounds very good. I'd love to win a copy. Thanks.

I think this is the first I've heard of it.

I hadn't heard of the film either. There are so many stories of similar things happening. The Albanians took hundreds of Greek children back into Albania, the Australians split aboriginal children from their families and so on. More recently all those kids captured or even those killed in Pakistan. Terrible things happen.
