I mean, if you’re going to tap into The Blind Side formula, the least they could do here is let Reese Witherspoon show off her Sweet Home Alabama Southern accent. Instead, in The Good Lie, Witherspoon goes brunette (so we know she’s being very, very serious) and takes in some Sudanese refugees and helps them find their way in America (and they, in turn, will help her find herself!)

My favorite line from the trailer:

Corey Stoll: What’s their story, anyway?

Reese Witherspoon: I’m not sure. They seem pretty traumatized.

YEAH. NO SHIT. THEY’RE SUDANESE REFUGEES WHO WATCHED THEIR ENTIRE FAMILY GUNNED DOWN BY REBELS. PICK UP A NEWSPAPER LADY.

Anyway, prepare to have your heartstrings manipulated.
