Goofs

Whilst all of the other guards on the cell shift watching the detainees check each and every room, including 109 and 110, Cole noticeably doesn't check those two rooms. This is visible on every rotation, and is so evident it's hard to believe it was overlooked. This is especially clear when the credits roll and the two new guards are shown looking in each cell, including 109 and 110. See more »

Excellent performances by Stewart and Moaadi, moving storyline
19 January 2014 | by Tdc-91-186252See all my reviews

Moving and emotionally charged performances by both Stewart and Moaadi from beginning to end. I was completely surprised by the subject matter of Gitmo, expecting a political message as the underlying theme, but it turned out to be a study of humanity and relationships within extreme circumstances. Impressive directorial debut of Sattler.

Stewart plays guard Amy Cole, a young marine from a small town who joined the military to escape her life. The movie centers around the conflict of her growing relationship with a prisoner, Moaadi, who has been in Gitmo for eight years. Both actors do justice to the storyline and these complex characters without building caricatures of military and extremist personalities. I'm not one for heavy military story lines, but I was pleasantly surprised by this film's twist to the Gitmo plot with a narrow lens on the people, not the politics. It's not all heavy subject matter....Moaadi adds some appreciated humor. Bottom line: worth my time.
