Sometimes in April (2005)

Idris Elba stars in this film set in the days leading up to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. The story centers on two brothers — one a radio broadcaster and the other a captain in the Rwandan army — as they witness the slaughter of close to a million people over ethnicity. The political atmosphere divides the siblings as members of their own family are killed.
