    The Good Lie, with Reese Witherspoon is funny and delightful but also has a great message. The acting was great! At first I thought I may have made a bad choice but once the story unfolded I loved every minute of it. I really appreciate stories that make you think about the important things in life. This movie did not disappoint.

    The Good Lie is a wonderful story of triumph in the face of tragedy. We don't always get a good picture of what the World is like outside of our own lives, but this film shows the heartbreak that thousands of people go through everyday. I'm glad Hollywood is making more uplifting films to share with everyone both young and old.

    I think this movie is a real nice movie. Its about how a family of young ones went through some of the most harsh and violent trials, but they survived, and in the end the love was given back. This is a movie that could show us that some are living in worst then us, and we have a lot to be thankful for.

    A true story told with warmth, reality, up close and personal. The actors drew me into their world, their time, their experience of suffering, sorrow, separation, sacrifice, survival. I was reminded of the importance of family, fraternal, extended, hope, faith in God, following Jesus forward.

    Amazing story of an incredible war torn family from Sudan coming to America. Wonderful characters, writing, acting, and character development. The title is somewhat misleading as there are actually two "Good Lies" and each will emotionally grip you. This movie is not to be missed.

    This is a great film to understand how quickly political unrest can create refugees, the human rights struggle to survive, the timeline and luck for the few who make it to America, and their challenge to be accepted, and accept a foreign home.

    I bought the movie with a little trepidation as my wife wanted it and I thought I was getting roped into a slow moving chick flick. I couldn't have been more wrong. The movie was great. It was a story that really got to your heart. I would definitely recommend it.

    This is a beautiful story. This is a terrible story. The actors are from South Sudan and lived the experience themselves. A few thousand Sudanese refugees were allowed in the USA. It shows their journey in Sudan and the culture chock after they arrive in the US.
