while on leave, I was able to take in the premiere at George Washington Univ. of a most incredible movie, "Hotel Rwanda", starring Don Cheadle in the true story of a brave, suave 4 star hotel manager in the capital of Rwanda. When the horrific genocide of 1994 breaks out, killing 800,000 people in just 100 days, his character, Paul Rusesabagina, shows incredible courage and uses his hotel to shelter over 1,200 survivors from slaughter. The film focuses on his struggle to save them and hold out hope against a backdrop of the worst failure of the international community in post ww2 history. What I appreciated most about this movie was that it made you cry without intentionally pulling at your heartstrings, without coldly manipulating into feeling sympathy for the characters or the situation. It presents the facts, both sides of the horror and those involved, and does so without catering to an ant-American viewpoint which many familiar with Rwanda's tragedy understandably hold. Cheadle's performance should earn him an Oscar, and the movie itself is very worthy of your six to ten bucks at the box office.
