Hotel Rwanda

This weekend we saw this movie that has been on our wish list for a while now. 'Hotel Rwanda' starring Don Cheadle as Paul Rusesabagina, just blew my mind. Apart from superb acting and the fact that it is a true story, the movie really had some very touching moments. Nick Nolte beautifully portrays the UN colonel Oliver, helpless but at the same time empathizing with the refugees. The way the world ignores africa is a stain on all of our consciousness. This movie only goes on to highlight it.
