Reese Witherspoon would like another Oscar—so she dyed her hair Serious Brown and channeled Erin Brockovich by way of The Blind Side for her latest movie, The Good Lie. (As the trailer quickly tells you, The Good Lie is brought to us by the same producers as Sandra Bullock’s football drama.)
Based on the true story of an out-of-her-element American woman who takes in four Sudanese “Lost Boys” refugees, the film costars House of Cards‘ Corey Stoll in what looks to be the Aaron Eckhart role and boasts this tagline: “Miracles are made by people who refuse to stop believing.”
The Good Lie is just one of a few Serious Projects Witherspoon has lined up for the fall. She’ll also star in the adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s bestselling memoir Wild, and is producing the highly-anticipated adaptation of Gone Girl.
Watch the trailer for The Good Lie below:
The Good Lie, directed by Philippe Falardeau, hits theaters Oct. 3; it’s nice timing that Dear White People opens just two weeks later.
