Hotel Rwanda (2004)
I watched Terry George's Hotel Rwanda on Sunday night with Katherine. It's a bloody good 'en that! Definitely worth a watch.
Basically the film is about the conflicts in Rwanda between the Hutus and Tutsis. Paul Rusesabagina (Don Cheadle) is a Hutu but his family and many of his friends are Tutsi. Rusesabagina uses the hotel where he works to house over a thousand Tutsi refugees. It also stars Nick Nolte and Joaquin Phoenix.
It's a true story and is very distressing at times but is, however, eye-opening.
Unfortunately the film did not win any of the three Academy Award nominations the film gained which is a shame because it is a fantastic movie.
