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
