"No one is going to get out of here. At least I am not." After debuting at the Sundance Film Festival at the beginning of the year, the Guantanamo Bay drama Camp X-Ray is hitting limited theaters this fall. Kristen Stewart leads the film about a young soldier who begins to question her orders and place in the military guarding detainees at the infamous terrorist prison camp. Personally, I didn't find much to enjoy about the film, from the lack of subtlety to Stewart's wooden performance, but Payman Moaadi delivers a praiseworthy turn as a prisoner who strikes up a friendship with Stewart's character. But you can decide for yourself with a new trailer that surfaced from the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, showing off more of the film.
Here's the new trailer for Peter Sattler's Camp X-Ray, found directly on YouTube:
If you missed it, the first official trailer for Camp X-Ray from earlier this year is right here.
Camp X-Ray is written and directed by Peter Sattler, making his feature debut. A young woman (Kristen Stewart) joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small-town. Instead, she ends up as a guard at Guantanamo Bay. Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees (Payman Moaadi). As two people on opposite sides of a war, they struggle to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay, but form an unlikely bond changing them both. IFC Films picked up the film from Sundance and releases it on October 17th.
