PARK CITY - The talk of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival on Friday, the first full day of the festival, centered on some surprise hits ("Obvious Child"), a major disappointment ("God's Pocket") and an out-of-the-ordinary entry ("Frank"). One film that received strong notices, specifically for its performances, was the Guantanamo Bay-centered drama "Camp X-Ray."

Stars Kristen Stewart, Peyman Moaadi, Lane Garrison and director Peter Saller made a stop at the HitFix condo last night to have an in-depth sit down about the U.S. dramatic competition entry. Stewart in particular is quite passionate about the project and Saller appeared to be on cloud nine after the film earned a partial standing ovation at its premiere.
