IFC Films has released a trailer for writer and director Peter Sattler's upcoming war drama Camp X-Ray. The film stars Kristen Stewart as a young woman who "joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots."
The synopsis goes on to explain that "she ends up as a new guard at Guantanamo Bay instead, where her mission is far from black and white. Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees. [It's a] story of two people, on opposite sides of a war, struggling to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay. And in the process, they form an unlikely bond that changes them both."
The movie premiered at Sundance and was met with mixed reviews. The movie is set to be released on October 17th.
