This is one of the best films I've ever seen. A friend of ours recommended it, and I was impressed. Not for younger children, though.

A wonderfully real movie with genuine characters. An inspiring, insightful and moving look into the life of a refugee.

Thoroughly enjoyable film. Gives a glimpse of the trauma experienced by Sudanese refugees, and the confusion and culture shock they experience when they move to America. And some of the actors really are refugees.

This movie shows the best of America when individuals are faced with the moral delima of refugees and choose to do the right thing

I agree with the patron comment that sees a picture that needed to be made of the situation of "The Lost Boys". It is an amazing story that some of these boys walked over a 1000 miles out of the Sudan to safety. We have no ordinary movie here. These are inspirational hero's that were both men and women. I for one am glad to know their story!

Something tells me that this is Hollywood's diluted version of events. Nonetheless, it serves its purpose: to raise awareness. And that is a good thing.
