WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Tom Egan (Hawke) is a former fighter pilot now piloting a drone by remote control to fight threats from the Taliban thousands of miles away. As the grounded mission continues, Tom starts to question whether he’s creating more terrorists than he’s killing, and whether he’s fighting in a war that never seems to end…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Filmmaker Andrew Niccol seems to have gotten the taste of Stephanie Meyer out of his creative taste buds – he was behind the awful adaptation of Meyer’s equally-awful The Host – and shows it with this much more grounded and poignant tale of war and what it’s worth fighting for.
