*Hotel Rwanda (PG-13)
In 1994, Rwanda became a slaughterhouse when conflict erupted between two ethnic populations, the then-ruling Hutus and the once-dominant Tutsis. Hotel Rwanda focuses on one of the most heartening true stories to emerge from Rwanda that year. Don Cheadle (Traffic) shines as Paul Rusesabagina, a Hutu married to a Tutsi and manager of the Mille Collines, an elegant European hotel in Kigali. Paul emerges as the film's hero, sheltering 1,268 refugees in the hotel and using his wits to fend off the Hutu killers. Because Hotel Rwanda is such a good movie, solidly directed with excellent acting, hundreds of thousands of people will watch it. Hopefully in this way the net separating society from the darkness of genocide will be drawn tighter. -- Dan Wilcock

Tinseltown

Work and Glory (PG)
A family moves to mid-state New York only to find themselves in the middle of Mormon religious controversy in Palmyra. Two brothers find themselves on opposite sides of this religious fence and in contention over the daughter of a wealthy landowner.
