Watch: First Trailer for Reese Witherspoon’s ‘The Good Lie’

Reese Witherspoon gets her African “s” countries mixed up in the first trailer for “The Good Lie.”

The Oscar winner plays a tough-as-nails woman who takes in three Sudanese refugees (she asks whether they’re from Somalia or Senegal) to help them get a fresh start in the U.S.

“House of Cards” alum Corey Stoll, Sudanese actors Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany and Emmanuel Jal, and newcomer Nyakuoth Weil, some of whom were children of war in real life, also star in director Philippe Falardeau’s pic.

Margaret Nagle started writing this Blacklist screenplay 10 years ago. Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and “Blind Side” EP Molly Smith are producing.

Alcon Entertainment will release the pic via Warner Bros. on October 3. It was originally slated for September 10.
