GOOD KILL is a thriller film directed by Andrew Niccol (In Time, The Host), starring Ethan Hawke, January Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Bruce Greenwood, and Jake Abel. It marks a reunion for Niccol and Hawke, who worked together on the 1997’s Gattaca and 2005’s Lord of War. The film competed for the Golden Lion at the 71st Venice International Film Festival and screened in the Special Presentations section of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
A fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot (Hawke), based in Las Vegas, fights the Taliban by remote control for twelve hours a day, then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife (Jones) and kids for the other twelve. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he’s killing? Is he fighting a war without end? One soldier’s tale with epic implications.
