TIFF 2015: ‘Eye In The Sky’ premiere with Helen Mirren
Dame Helen Mirren leads an all-star cast in director Gavin Hood’s Eye In The Sky, a unique look at how war is waged in the modern world.
The goal of British-led Operation Cobra is the capture of Aisha Al Hady a radicalized British citizen who has joined the Somali terrorist group Al Shabab. Their “capture” objective is changed to “kill” after Colonel Katherine Powell (Mirren) learns Shabab is planning suicide attacks and Nevada-based drone operator Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) holds up the mission when a 9-year-old girl enters the kill zone, sending the mission into a bureaucratic tailspin.
The team’s views differ greatly on whether or not the child civilian’s life is worth taking down three of their most wanted international fugitives?
Watch our interviews with Dame Helen Mirren, Barkhad Abdi and director Gavin Hood below.
