A group of Sudanese refugees arrives in Kansas City, Missouri, where they encounter an employment agency counselor who changes their lives. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, and Ger Duany.
This film is based on the true story of the lost boys of Sudan, and it’s a film that tugs at your heartstrings. It starts with the backstory of these boys as they survive the attack on their village and live in a refugee camp. When they arrive in the U.S., they get separated from each other. The story revolves around the boys learning to live in America and trying to get back together. The film is also a sobering account that change isn’t always for the best. The boys’ story is what makes this film what it is. Although Witherspoon has the acting chops for the role, I almost wish it was played by someone who could disappear in the role. This is a film that is worth a watch.
