In this morally intentioned but shaky debut From writer director Peter Sattler, Kristen Stewart is really impressive as a guard stationed in Guantanamo Bay where she forms an unpopular friendship with one of the detainees. Payman Maadi plays her ‘paramour’ – a restless soul with an artistic streak (given to sketching and reading Harry Potter). Across the wire, the pair exchange platonic pleasantries but it’s all a bit threadbare and underwritten, relying too much on Stewart’s acting chops and not enough on substance and a decent story despite a worth premise. Stewart carries Camp X-Ray on her fatigued-clad shoulders; reminding us how good she can be when singlehandedly holding the fort. MT
