The Playlist: New Trailer For Werner Herzog's 'Queen Of The Desert' Starring Nicole Kidman, Robert Pattinson, And More | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art |

Starring Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Damian Lewis, and Robert Pattinson, the film tells the story of Gertrude Bell, the British explorer, traveler, archaeologist, and political officer who played a key role in Middle East politics in the 1920s, during the last days of the Ottoman Empire. It's potentially powerful stuff, but as our review notes, "the film does a disservice to the real Bell" by telling her tale in "a movie bracketed by romance."
