Via Mad About Movies, I read about the fictionalized version of Lieutenant-General Romeo Dallaire’s haunting account of the Rwanda genocide, Shake Hands With the Devil. It’s a Canadian production, and stars Roy Dupuis as Dallaire. I thought Dupuis was excellent in The Rocket. Here’s the trailer:
I’m judging a book by its cover, but this version (there’s also a documentary of the same name) seems more hopeful and redemptive than the book, which felt pretty bleak to me.
On a barely related note, Marina also links to the trailer for The Mist, a new horror film based on one of my favourite Stephen King short stories. If you ask me, they show way too much of the baddies.
