Watch: Kristen Stewart Impresses in Moving Trailer for 'Camp X-Ray'

While Peter Sattler’s directorial debut "Camp X-Ray" received mixed notices (our own Eric Kohn called the film "half-baked") at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, critics all fell for Kristen Stewart’s tough-as-nails turn, with Variety going so far as to compare her performance to Jodie Foster’s Oscar-winning one in "The Silence of the Lambs." You can now get a peek at what all the hype is about via the first trailer for the film, released online today by distributor IFC Films.

i found very weir to see a trailer than it barely show her leading actress, only staring and with a few brief scenes. it makes me wonder if this is only do to Stewart’s lack of acting range, wich we have seen in all of her previus perfomance

Looks pretty great actually. I think Kristen Stewart can be awesome when she isn’t in a teeny bopper franchise.

The film has it’s flaws but the two main performances are excellent. Stewart especially.
