Movies to Knit By (1)



Orphaned during the Sudanese Civil War, a group of young refugees are given the opportunity to leave their camp and resettle in America.

with Reese Witherspoon and a group of the young refugees

This amazing movie is well worth watching even if you don’t knit. It is so poignant and offers an insight into what these young people had to go through to adjust to living in America and the sacrifices they had to make and the horrors they experienced before they reached the refugee camp.

The ethical question of ‘The Good Lie’ is taken from Huckleberry Finn, where Huck chooses to lie to do good, even though he knows it’s wrong.

Makes me think of making amends to people for the wrong we may have done them in the past, no matter how unwittingly. To make amends in the present can sometimes do more harm than good and we have to choose carefully that we are not just boosting our own egos.

What this has to do with the film I can’t disclose without spoiling the ending, but you’ll see the connection as the story unfolds.

Grateful that the knitting grows in such a way, combining satisfaction in the craft with satisfaction of the soul.
