The Good Lie

Rated PG-13 109 minutes 2014

The Good Lie tells the true story of an American woman who helps four young Sudanese refugees relocate and get acclimated to life in the United States. Following in the triumphant footsteps of other films about white people making everything better for non-white people, The Good Life could be this year's answer to The Blind Side. Or Dances With Wolves. Or Avatar. Or The Last Samurai. You get the idea.
