Eye in the Sky
Ex-SA director Gavin Hood is back with another thought-provoking film, set in the world of remote drone warfare. Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, a UK-based military officer in command of a top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from 'capture' to 'kill.' But as the American pilot(Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone triggering an international dispute, reaching the highest levels of US and British government, over the moral, political, and personal implications of modern warfare.
