Cheadle in a New ‘Dress’

Cheadle in a New 'Dress'

I had to take a break from wrapping up submission-screening to catch the critically acclaimed new film, Hotel Rwanda. It’s powerful, and perhaps most powerful, is the performance of Don Cheadle.

For those of us who have followed his career since Devil in a Blue Dress, the awards talk he’s receiving comes after years of following both poor choices (Volcano) and great choices (Boogie Nights, Out of Sight). Maybe he will get an Oscar nomination at long last. If so, it comes many years too late, but it’s an accomplishment he deserves.
