The Release and Response – Weak Subject
The film is based on true events of survivors which came out with modest response from different markets. The release was not very wide as mostly upscale theaters were chosen for release. Also the lack of advertising and marketing strategies made the response weaker. But to those who came to watch the movie, it was a treat for them. And then the overall amazing reviews made the film a Saga.
They say, “Numbers matter the most”
The numbers tell that The Good Lie collected $2.7 million according to Box Office Mojo. The Movie is reviewed very amazingly all over the world and is a must watch.
