Pre-order ‘Eye In The Sky’ Soundtrack: [iTunes]
It’s the drama of seemingly unavoidable tragedy with a keen sense of African place on the greater world stage that makes Kilian and Hepker’s score at once as relentlessly suspenseful as any soundtrack in the terrorist-fighting genre, but also one with a poignant realization of the collateral cost of natives who barely rate the margins of a daily drone strike story in the news, their voice crying out on the soundtrack as they’re silenced in a sacrifice they never dreamed of making in the war on terror. – Film Music Magazine

EYE IN THE SKY stars Helen Mirren as Colonel Katherine Powell, a UK-based military officer in command of a top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya. Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, Powell discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from “capture” to “kill.” But as American pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone, triggering an international dispute reaching the highest levels of US and British government over the moral, political, and personal implications of modern warfare.
Also starring Alan Rickman, Barkhad Abdi, Jeremy Northam, Iain Glen and Phoebe Fox, the film is directed by Gavin Hood (TSOTSI) and written by Guy Hibbert (“Prime Suspect”). Producers are Ged Doherty, Colin Firth and David Lancaster.
