First Look at Kristen in 'Welcome to the Rileys'

One film sure to make a splash at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, whether it is liked or not, is Jake Scott's Welcome to the Rileys starring James Gandolfini, Kristen Stewart and Melissa Leo and I have your first five looks at the film. Yes, it's because it stars the Twilight star Kristen Stewart, but it's the role she is playing that is going to attract watchful eyes.

Stewart plays a lap dancer and prostitute in the film, which follows a damaged man (Gandolfini) who seeks salvation while on a business trip to New Orleans. Salvation is apparently sought by caring for Stewart's character, Mallory, a troubled young woman. Gandolfini's character and his wife (Leo) were driven apart by grief after losing their daughter.

The first stills from the film have just come in and while they don't show any skin, that is exactly what speculation says viewers are going to get according to an article at UK's Digital Spy.
"It's an independent movie that nobody would normally see," Stewart said. "Now it's like, 'Oh, let's go see Bella in this stripper movie – it'll be crazy!' Working with James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo, who is just incredible, was the most fruitful life-changing experience on a movie that I've ever had."
