Helen Mirren stars as Colonel Katherine Powell, a UK-based military officer in command of a top-secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya, in this thought-provoking 2015 film. Through remote surveillance, Powell discovers that the terrorists are planning a suicide bombing and the mission becomes critical, but as American pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the target area, initiating a tense international ethics dispute involving Powell, Lieutenant General Frank Benson (Alan Rickman), and the U.S. Attorney General (Richard McCabe). DVD extras include cast and crew interviews as well as featurettes on the making of the film.
"Mr. Rickman was never nominated for an Academy Award and it's probably a long shot for a posthumous Supporting Actor for this film—but his work here is a reminder of what a special talent he possessed."—Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
