Ten years ago, as the country of Rwanda descended into madness, one man made a promise to protect the family he loved - and ended up finding the courage to save over 1200 people. Hotel Rwanda tells the inspiring story of real-life hero Paul Rusesabagina (Don Cheadle), a hotel manager in Rwanda who used his courage and cunning to shelter over a thousand refugees from certain death. While the rest of the world closed its eyes, Paul opened his heart and proved that one good man can make a difference. United Artists is proud to present Don Cheadle, Sophie Okonedo, Joaquin Phoenix, and Nick Nolte in Hotel Rwanda, produced in association with Lions Gate Entertainment, a South Africa/United Kingdom/Italy co-production in association with The Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa, a Miracle Pictures/Seamus production produced in association with Inside Track.
