Eye in the Sky stars Helen Mirren as 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.” But as American pilot Steve Watts (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.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Eye in the Sky is a tense, thought-provoking film about the hours leading up to a military drone strike -- and the intricate, gut-wrenching process (and complex, difficult moral choices) that goes into deciding whether and when to attack. Starring Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, and Alan Rickman, it's an intense movie to watch, and younger viewers may find it overwhelming and upsetting. Expect explosions and their aftermath (some burned bodies/body parts are shown), as well as scenes showing terrorists preparing for an attack and military men threatening and shooting enemies. There's also occasional strong language, including "f--k."
