About the film: EYE IN THE SKY is a smart, politically charged thriller set on the cutting edge of drone warfare. When UK intelligence officer Colonel Katherine Powel (Mirren) discovers the terrorists she is tracking are planning a deadly suicide attack, her mission escalates from "capture" to "kill". American drone pilot Steve Watts (Paul) is poised to engage when, suddenly, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone. With nuanced performances from a terrific ensemble cast, EYE IN THE SKY deftly explores the ethical conundrum of collateral damage; should one innocent life be sacrificed to save hundreds more? Moving at a heart-racing pace, EYE IN THE SKY takes us into a moral and political minefield in which every decision comes at a steep price.
