About this book
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 1,200 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. His real life-story inspired Terry George to make this powerful and dramatic film.

Drawn from George's three years of research, this informative volume includes three articles that chronicle the historical events and their aftermath, a brief history and timeline, the fascinating story of the making of the film, and the complete screenplay written by Keir Pearson and Terry George.

While the rest of the world closed its eyes, Paul opened his heart and proved that one good man can make a difference.

From the Oscar-nominated writer of In the Name of the Father comes a deeply moving and inspiring film about a Rwandan hotel manager turned true-life hero, starring Don Cheadle, Sophie Okonedo, Joaquin Phoenix, and Nick Nolte. Winner of the People's Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.
