Preview: Ron Howard’s ‘The Good Lie’

Ron Howard produces this upcoming film called ‘The Good Lie’ starring Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (‘Walk the Line‘).  The drama was written by Margaret Nagle and is directed by Philippe Falardeau.

Looks intriguing and it will be interesting to see how the current border crisis plays into the reception from audiences.  At only 92-minutes in length, this entire, relatively short, story may be found in the above trailer.  However, with Academy Award winning director (‘A Beautiful Mind’) Howard’s name attached to the film this drama may draw serious accolades.  And coupled with Witherspoon’s abundant run of movies hitting screens in 2014 (‘Wild‘, ‘Devil’s Knot‘), ‘The Good Lie‘ may be her most significant film not only in 2014, but also in recent years.

Bottom line:  Expect to hear ‘The Good Lie‘ in Oscar discussions.

The Good Lie‘ opens October 3rd in theaters and is Rated PG-13.
