Hotel for Dogs

Hotel for Dogs

Dir: Thor Freudenthal

Starring: Don Cheadle, some kids

Runtime: 1 hr 40 mins

In 2004, Don Cheadle made us take a hard look at our sheltered, western lives with Hotel Rwanda. In 2009, Cheadle surpasses anything he's ever done before with Hotel for Dogs. Hotel for Dogs has all of the emotional poignancy of Hotel Rwanda, but with the added relevancy of taking place in our own country. This triumph of the canine spirit will certainly be remembered as the most emotionally powerful movie about a hotel ever made.

5 out of 5 stars.
