Dynamite Dame shines in top thriller
Eye in the Sky Film4, Friday at 7pm ●●●●●
The war on terror gets a fresh, more personal twist in Gavin Hood’s emotionally charged thriller.
Guy Hibbert’s screenplay doesn’t sugarcoat – there are no clear heroes and villains, or right or wrong answers.
Dame Helen Mirren’s battlehardened soldier is her finest performance in years and the late Alan Rickman is gifted a fittingly fine farewell.
A white-knuckle ride with powerful performances and dealing in very serious business, Eye in the Sky is a thought-provoking look behind the curtain of modern warfare.
