Eye in the Sky Movie Summary
In this 2016 military thriller directed by Gavin Hood, Col. Katherine Powell (Helen Mirren) sees her mission to capture terrorists in Kenya escalate when intelligence reveals a plot to bomb civilian targets. The film alternates perspectives between her view and the story unfolding internationally as assets work to thwart the plot and eliminate the targets.

Joined by the late Alan Rickman as Lieutenant General Frank Benson, Barkhad Abdi as Jama Farah, an undercover agent on the ground in Kenya, Col. Powell leads a tense exploration of the ins and outs of drone warfare, taking the viewer behind the scenes of the interplay of international relations, military service and the costs of war.
