Camp X-Ray: News and a New Still.
Although we still don’t yet have an official release date for Kristen Stewart’s upcoming film “Camp X-Ray”, it’s being premiered at the prestigious “Sundance” Festival on 17th January. There are three planned viewings of the film, all of which sold out quickly.
It has been voted for as one of the “Top 35 Independent Films of 2014”.
Director: Peter Sattler
Stars: Kristen Stewart, Julia Duffy, Lane Garrison, John Carroll Lynch, Yousuf Azami, Tara Holt, Peyman Moaadi
Release date: To be determined
Kristen Stewart spent most of 2013 M.I.A., but it looks like she’ll be reclaiming the spotlight this year with a film that’s a far cry from what made her an international phenomenon. In Camp X-Ray, Stewart stars as Amy Cole, a small town girl who enlists in the military to escape her seemingly meaningless existence. She doesn’t get thrown into the battlefield like she imagines. Rather, she’s stationed as a guard at Guantanamo Bay’s Camp X-Ray, a temporary detention facility where she not only encounters the most hostile inmates, but unexpectedly forms a life-changing friendship with one of the detainees.
An official Sundance competition selection, Camp X-Ray is poised to be the film that’ll shut up every Kristen Stewart hater. —Tara Aquino
