Hotel Rwanda

Me and Neil went to see Hotel Rwanda today. It is a wonderful film but also deeply disturbing as it portrays the Rwandan genocide in 1994. The film reminded me of Schindler's List as it shows how one family can make a huge difference; it is based on the true story of Paul Rusesabagina who sheltered about 1200 refugees in a hotel. The film also reminded me of how ignorant I am of so much of the stuff going on in the world. Hotel Rwanda is well worth watching but be prepared to be moved.
