Abstract: The Good Lie is a 2014 American drama film written by Margaret Nagle, and directed by Philippe Falardeau. The aim of this research is to see the identity construction of Sudanese refugees in The Good Lie film. Using the Descriptive analysis and qualitative method to reveal the findings, thus, this research describes the identity dynamics of three main characters and their identity constructions through Stuart Hall‘s basic identity concept and three very different conceptions, and supported by Kathryn Woodward‘s identity concept. All the data collected from the script dialogues and the cropped pictures of the film. The findings of this research explains the identity of someone or a group, in this case the Sudanese refugees affected by two things; life in the past and the future life (the recent life). After the identity construction, this research states that the Sudanese refugees‘ identities divided into the sociological subject. This happens due to the life of the Sudanese refugees experiencing the collision of culture and the identity negotiation, those interaction formed and modified the Sudanese refugees‘ identity but the subject still has an inner core or essence that is ―the real me‖ based on Hall‘s identity concept. However, changes to the identity of the Sudanese refugees are not comprehensive; in this case, all of this refers to the subjects itself how they articulate their latest identity.
