    Hotel Rwanda - 12/22

    Release Date: 12/22/2004 Drama, Family, Political Rated: PG-13 Runtime: 1 hr 50 mins

    Ten years ago some of the worst atrocities in the history of mankind took place in the country of Rwanda--and in an era of high-speed communication and round the clock news, the events went almost unnoticed by the rest of the world. In only three months, one million people were brutally murdered. In the face of these unspeakable actions, inspired by his love for his family, an ordinary man summons extraordinary courage to save the lives of over a thousand helpless refugees, by granting them shelter in the hotel he manages.
    Cast: Don Cheadle , Djimon Hounsou , Nick Nolte , Sophie Okonedo , Desmond Dube , Mothusi Magano

    It sounds heartwrenching, but worth seeing. I wonder what kind of role Don Cheadle plays?
    Iím haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.

    I saw the previews and it looks very good. I researched the Rwanda Genocide for a project so it will be interesting to watch.

    It is already up for a couple of Golden Globes.

    Zhora, Don Cheadle plays the main character... the hotel manager.

    I was watching an Oceans Twelve interview with all of the guys, and they showed a clip from this movie. It looks amazing!

    Thanks Broadway.

    I think I'll check this one out, (with a full box of Kleenex).

    I saw an interview with the real life people and the actors and they were all incredible. I think this movie will definitely be worth seeing because they seemed to all feel so passionately about everything. I respect actors and directors who create movies to raise awareness for issues that they feel strongly about.

    I just checked to see if this was playing near me, & of course it's not. It appears to only be showing in LA & NY?

    This one is playing at my local AMC. I'm thinking of checking it out.

    Million Dollar Baby looks pretty good, too. Wow, The Aviator and House of Flying Daggers are also out. It's a great time to be a movie fan.

    I'm surprised that a movie about genocide is rated PG-13.
    (Hint: I'm not blaming the MPAA.)

    Hotel Rwanda doesn't sound as interested as Moolaade to me, but the reason it's getting more play is no mystery. Of course, there's always room for more than one film about Africa, especially since the subject matter is quite different. I hope to see both of them eventually.
