“Eye in the Sky”

“Eye in the Sky”

I watched this taut British thriller while flying home from Paris recently. Not only did it help me pass the time on a long flight, but I really recommend it. Read this review by Rolling Stone writer, Peter Travers, from March 9, 2016 http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/reviews/eye-in-the-sky-20160309

Helen Mirren and Aaron Paul debate the merits of drone warfare in this torn-from-the-headlines drama

It's a setup for a moral debate on drone warfare. That Eye in the Sky is nowhere near that dry and academic is a tribute to director Gavin Hood (Tsotsi), who uses a tight script, by Guy Hibbert, to hold us in a vise and keep squeezing. The suspense is killer as military minds in the US and the UK come together only to lock horns on a drone operation in Nairobi.

In one corner, there's Katherine Powell (a dynamite Helen Mirren), a British army colonel ready to order a U.S. military drone to target a Somali terrorist organization believed to include two British citizens and one American. Cue the complication: Alia (Aisha Takow), a young Kenyan girl is selling bread in the kill zone.
