Eye In The Sky
Helen Mirren is Colonel Katherine Powell, a UK-based military officer in command of a top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya. Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, Powell discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing, and the mission escalates from “capture” to “kill,” which sets off a political debate among Lieutenant General Frank Bensen (Alan Rickman) and high-ranking government ministers, witnessing the operation via satellite. But as American pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year-old girl enters the killzone, triggering an international dispute reaching the highest levels of US and British government over the moral, political, and personal implications of modern warfare.
