Book lovers and film lovers join us to view blockbuster film adaptations of bestselling books. This month's feature is, "Hotel Rwanda". Paul Rusesabagina a Hutu hotel manager lives a content life with his Tutsi wife, Sophie Okonedo, and their three children. When Hutu military powers begin a movement of ethnic purging against the Tutsi minority, Paul permits refugees to take shelter in his hotel. As the U.N. pulls out, Paul must single handedly protect the Tutsi refugees in the face of the intensifying violence later known as the Rwandan genocide.
