Oscar-winning producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer team up with the producer of The Blind Side in this uplifting true story that follows a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War who relocates to the United States with three other "lost boys." Encountering the modern world for the first time, they develop an unlikely friendship with a brash American woman (Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon) assigned to help them. But the young man not only struggles with his new life, but also with feelings of guilt about the family that he left behind in war-torn Africa.

    I'm still crying! This movie was not only amazing but it was just... Wow! I love this movie so much! It's so sad at the end and you kinda have to see to believe. This film will definitely leave a spot in your heart forever! I love this so much and it's just so sad because apparently people are too cruel to sponsor someone from Sudan.😒 The fact that it's true just makes it better and even more sad! But it's pretty funny at some parts. And I wish I could trade spots with people in Africa sometimes because their lives are too heartbreaking and they just feel so unreal that it's that bad. So anyways this movie is probably the best movie ever! I loved it how when they all got together they were just one big happy family despite their differences. Amir is so good to his brother because he let him and his brother he thought was dead switch places just so he could have a better life! That's what I call a brother! 😢 Once again this film was amazing and I'm still crying! Please watch it cause you'll love it!

    This is such a great movie for so many reasons. Renting I thought that it would be a dark movie all the way through and super sad but the direction is very optimistic and humorous while being inspiring. Such a well done movie and will leave you smiling! A must watch for everyone!

  • Worth it

    I wish everyone would see this film. The takeaway I had was how incredibly difficult it is to leave home - a war torn country - and come to America and try to assimilate. The struggles, pain and extreme sadness these people experience is beyond what most of us are capable of imagining. I will forever be mindful of the reality refugees live.
  • So much love for this movie!

    I watched this movie the first time, and then went back and watched it again the next day with my mom and sister. The story is so moving. It dug deeply into my heart, yet left me uplifted and inspired by the spirits of these amazing people. I think everyone should watch this movie and support this cause.
