This engaging documentary following the lives of several "Lost Boys of Sudan" who have come to the US as refugees. This feels like such an important film at a time our country is turning its back on international refugee communities. We should not be closing the borders to refugees who are seeking safety and better lives away from their ravaged homelands. Highly recommended to anyone seeking more information about the lives and struggles of refugees.

I remember these Lost Boys of Suadn. More about their history and their current should be told to help us make better immigration decisions and to consider fully the impact of war on children long term.
This documentary is sad, insightful, refreshing, and touching. I came to really love the men studied. They are true inspirations. Their innocence reminds you what is really important to victims of war and what they really need from us during our attempts to help. Well done.

Above average inspirational documentary. Sheds light on issues in Africa and with integration of immigrants to the U.S.

The title is a bit of a misnomer....To quote one of the lost boys, "We knew through our journey, that nobody was helping us, but God."
Otherwise, it was an amazing story.

Great documentary about the lost boys of Sudan, their travails in Africa and their introduction to U.S. culture. The insanity and brutality of American culture and life is exposed by the African men who are used to close family and human relationships. Brilliant and fascinating.

My reviews (like all reviews.) are opinion based, film is very subjective as are all art mediums, reviews are meant to be informative and humorous.

Plot: 4 stars ****
Gore: 0 stars

This documentory will open your eyes (if not already open) to some of the problems of Africa.
It follows several "lost boys" as they first come to America and adapt to our lifestyle and culture.
Powerful and full of truth it is a sociological adventure, a glance at our culture from an outside perspective. Inspiring and heartbreaking. Full of win.
