Considering all the buzz Camp X-Ray received at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, we had a feeling the military film was going to be good. But until we saw the trailer, we didn’t quite realize just how good this movie could potentially be. It’s all thanks to Kristen Stewart, who stars as as Cole, a brand new (and young) guard at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility.
She slowly develops a bond with a detainee, leading to, not surprisingly, some serious drama. Judging from the teaser alone, Stewart’s go-for-broke performance is enough for anyone to develop Twilight amnesia and finally take her killer acting chops seriously.
