, if that makes sense. There's no Don Cheadle to make you feel like everything's going to be alrght somewhere, and the violence is much more immediate. It's just terrible desperation all the way through. Wiki link here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sometimes_In_April
It's one of the most disturbing films I've seen- it just communicates much more strongly than Hotel Rwanda the magnitude of what happened. The whole film is just so strong, at least for me, and so much more devastating than Hotel Rwanda. If anyone else watches it I'd like to hear your thoughts. Btw, if anyone knows Idris Elba, he plays the lead role.
