Andrew Niccol's 21st century war drama Good Kill stars Ethan Hawke as Air Force Major Thomas Egan, a talented pilot who spends his days operating a drone over various terrorist threats in the middle east while sitting in a trailer on a base in Las Vegas. Egan hates not being allowed to fly actual planes anymore, and as the CIA begins dictating orders to Egan and his crew, he begins to feel morally disconnected from his job. This leads to more conflict at home with his wife (January Jones), who wishes her husband could focus on their family as much as his military duty. Good Kill screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
