Hotel Rwanda is almost too good to be true

5 second plot: This is the true story of a hotel manager who rescued over a thousand people (mostly Tutsi) by sheltering them from killing squads (mostly Hutu) in Rwanda in the 1990's.

5 second review: These people were so lucky, it's almost unimaginable. If this weren't a true story, I would hate it because I wouldn't believe it. The actors are amazing and the story is amazing, but it all feels so unreal. Not the killings of course, that can't get any more real. But the whole hotel story.

IMDb score: 8,2/10
