During the 1994 massacre of Tutsis in Rwanda, hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina sheltered more than 1,000 refugees, repelling murderous boarders with bribes, bluffs, charm and subterfuge. This wrenching, searing film rests on the shattering performance of Don Cheadle, whose Rusesabagina remains the personification of decency and humanity. "Hotel Rwanda" isn't a tear-jerker; the tears it inspires are earnest and earned and true.

A United Artists release. Director: Terry George. Writers: Keir Pearson, Terry George. Cast: Don Cheadle, Sophie Okonedo, Nick Nolte and Fana Mokoena. Running time: 2 hr., 1 min. Rated PG-13.
