Terry George's drama Hotel Rwanda turned horrific real-life events into inspiring drama, and helped bring public attention to a news story that was ignored by much of the world. The extras on the DVD release of the film balance a behind-the-scenes look at the production with the desire to include more historical context. Director Terry George, composer Wyclef Jean, lead actor Don Cheadle, and Paul Rusesabagina (the real-life person Cheadle portrayed) all provide commentary at different points throughout the movie. The "Return to Rwanda" featurette follows Rusesabagina as he visits the sites depicted in the film for the first time since he fled the country. The film is presented in a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. English, French, and Spanish subtitles are accessible. This is a disc that will appeal to the film's fans, as well as to those with an interest in the historical events at the heart of the movie.
