The Nile Hilton Incident is a great thriller movie and this is a must watch movie. The rating given by IMDb is 7.4 out of 10 which is good enough. This movie set against the backdrop of the Egyptian Revolution, the thriller features a police officer who investigates the murder of a woman. http://www.essayhelpcollege.blogspot.com/

I think I counted 42 awards that were handed out and there were about 60 or 70 films. If you go to Sundance you have a very good chance of getting something.
