A new Warner Brothers movie that recounts the horrors of Sudan’s second civil war is coming to the big screen this fall.

Orphaned by the brutal civil war in Sudan that began in 1983, these young victims traveled as many as a thousand miles on foot in search of safety. Fifteen years later, a humanitarian effort would bring 3600 lost boys and girls to America.

They have come to be known simply as “The Lost Boys.”

Philippe Falardeau, brings the story of the Lost Boys survival and triumph to life. Academy Awardwinner Reese Witherspoon (“Walk the Line”) stars alongside Sudanese actors Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal, and Nyakuoth Weil, many of whom were also children of war.

The movie is due in theaters October 3.
