Welcome To The Rileys Trailer

According to recent reviews, journalists are hailing Kristen Stewart's performance in her upcoming movie, Welcome To The Riley's, as "electric". Stewart, who filmed the movie between Twilight and New Moon, plays a pole dancing young stripper/prostitute in the movie, due out in October.

An MTV review states that Stewart is “utterly fearless in Welcome to the Riley's. That’s the takeaway from the film’s world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday afternoon. You can quibble all you want with her portrayal of a 16-year-old runaway turned stripper and prostitute. But you cannot walk away from a viewing and say the actress doesn’t fearlessly expose herself physically and emotionally, and doesn’t do so with astonishing maturity and believability.”

Welcome To The Riley's, stars Stewart as a troubled young woman who is befriended by James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo, who have recently lost their daughter. The movie was a favorite at the Sundance Film Festival this year, and critical acclaim has come from viewers who have attended film festivals this summer. There have been positive reviews for all three stars of the film.

It looks like we, the public, can soon forget the Kristen Stewart we know so well as the girl you can count on to give the same performance movie after movie. Sasha Stone, Oscar guru, says that Kristen Stewart would be a key nominee in the Best Supporting Actress category at the Oscars in 2011.
