Toronto 2015: 'Eye in the Sky' Review

I think most intelligent people agree that the use of drones is, well, problematic and morally complicated. So a film like Eye in the Sky is welcome, painting a scenario in which U.S. and U.K. forces work together to take out a terrorist cell in Africa. But what happens when an innocent little girl could be killed if the drones blow up the targeted house? That's the dilemma that director Gavin Hood plays out with maximum manipulation. I reviewed the film for Screen International.
