Based on a true story, HOTEL RWANDA is the widely acclaimed film about the real life Rwandan hero who saved more than 1200 lives in the face of appalling danger.
The film tells the inspiring and profoundly moving story of Paul Rusesabagina, a hotel manager in Rwanda, who finds the unexpected courage to shelter over a thousand refugees from certain death during the insanity and inhumanity of the massacres in his country at the end of the twentieth century.
Directed and co-written by Terry George (writer of IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, director of SOME MOTHER'S SON), HOTEL RWANDA stars Don Cheadle (OCEAN'S ELEVEN & TWELVE) as Rusesabagina and the UK's Sophie Okonedo (DIRTY PRETTY THINGS) as his wife Tatiana.
