After Robert Pattinson finally washed the stench of “Twilight” off his reputation via his excellent performance in “The Rover,” it appears that Kristen Stewart’s up next with her role as a soldier assigned to Guantanamo Bay who makes friends with a detainee in graphic designer Peter Sattler’s first feature, “Camp X-Ray”. It should help that her co-star is Peyman Moaadi, who gave one of this decade’s best performances in “A Separation.” And a new trailer has arrived.
Written and directed by Peter Sattler, the film follows a young woman who’s deployed as a guard at Guantanamo Bay and chronicles the unlikely friendship she develops with one of the detainees. Even though the critical reaction to “Camp X-Ray” during its festival run has been mixed, many critics found much to admire in Stewart’s performance. And long as she doesn’t have a line as dumb as “you named my baby after the Lock Ness Monster!?,” we should be fine.
“Camp X-Ray” opens on VOD and in theaters on October 17th. Watch below.
