Movie Review: Camp X-Ray

Stationed at Guantanamo Bay on her first assignment, rookie soldier Amy Cole (Kristen Stewart, as different from Bella Swan as you can imagine) bonds with one of the detainees, a smart and intellectual, English-speaking Amir Ali (Peayman Mooadi). Their conversations, as she rolls a book cart through the cell block, tentative at first, warmer as time passes by, are fascinating.

Shot almost entirely in the confines of the prison, Camp X-Ray is definitely one of Kristen's best performances, and quite a human drama, if you like that kinda stuff.
