Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Eye in the Sky is a tense, thought-provoking film about the hours leading up to a military drone strike -- and the intricate, gut-wrenching process (and complex, difficult moral choices) that goes into deciding whether and when to attack. Starring Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, and Alan Rickman, it's an intense movie to watch, and younger viewers may find it overwhelming and upsetting. Expect explosions and their aftermath (some burned bodies/body parts are shown), as well as scenes showing terrorists preparing for an attack and military men threatening and shooting enemies. There's also occasional strong language, including "f--k."
