A true story
Don Cheadle gives an Oscar nominated performance in this "profoundly affecting" (Houston Chronicle) true story of one man's brave stance against savagery during the 1994 Rwandan conflict. Nominated for an additional two Oscars for Best Supporting Actress (Sophie Okonedo) and Best Original Screenplay, Hotel Rwanda is "the kind of film that can change the world." (Joel Siegel, Good Morning America).
As his country descends into madness, five-star-hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina (Cheadle) sets out to save his family. But when he sees that the world will not intervene in the massacre of minority Tutsis, he finds the courage to open his hotel to more than 1,200 refugees - with only his wits and words to help keep them alive another hour . . . another day.
