Margaret Nagle, a screenwriter who's worked on hit TV shows such as "Boardwalk Empire" and recently penned the screenplay for "The Good Lie," which details the lives of Christian Sudanese refugees, describes how she incorporated the characters' Christian faith in the film.

I haven't been raised going to church but I write historical projects, a lot of true stories, and so, I felt, I'm just going to use their faith as they use their faith in the telling of the story," Nagle told The Christian Post, explaining how she included the Christian faith of the lead characters who are based on people that fled the Sudan.
"I love the way their faith generated a belief system for them and carried them through. It was sort of a love letter from me to their personal faith and how it opened them up and kept them strong," she said. more >>
