My Conversation With Kristen Stewart

PBS

Tonight, I'm joined by Kristen Stewart who is continuing her commitment to independent films with her latest movie, Camp X-Ray, in which she delivers a strong, nuanced performance as a young, inexperienced MP assigned to Gitmo. Once there, her character interacts with a detainee and begins to understand that there is inherent humanity in everyone.

In the clip below, I ask Kristen about the controversy the film is sure to generate.
