Helen Mirren, Alan Rickman, Aaron Paul and Barkhad Abdi star in Gavin Hood’s (TsotsiRendition) searing new thriller, screened at Toronto this year, which investigates the widespread use (and questionable morality) of drone warfare in conflicts by western governments.

Eye in the Sky focuses on a particular locale – a shanty town in Kenya where jihadi suicide bombers from terrorist group al-Shabaab are reportedly ensconced following the Nairobi shopping mall attack.

Helen Mirren plays a stern colonel stationed at an army base; Aaron Paul a drone pilot in Nevada; Alan Rickman a lieutenant in the midst of warring politicians and Barkhad Abdi, an agent on the ground in Kenya.

Guy Hibbert’s terse screenplay offers a glimpse of each character’s background through actions rather than words – showing us four individuals caught in the web of a much larger political game, and tasked with making abstract decisions with potentially horrifying real-life implications.It’s an overpoweringly effective and thought-provoking thriller about one of the most morally dubious activities of the modern age; seeking to exploit the very real drama inherent in the story without unnecessary showiness, and all the more effective for it.

Winfried doesn’t see much of his working daughter Ines. The suddenly student-less music teacher decides to surprise her with a visit after the death of his old dog. It’s an awkward move because serious career woman Ines is working on an important project as a corporate strategist in Bucharest. The geographical change doesn’t help the two to see more eye to eye. Practical joker Winfried loves to annoy his daughter with pranks- but even worse are his jabs at her routine lifestyle of long meetings, hotel bars and performance reports. Father and daughter reach an impasse, and Winfried agrees to return home to Germany.
Enter ashy Toni Erdmann, Winfried’s smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become, and in all the madness, Ines slowly begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve a place in her life after all.

Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha), Ethan Hawke (Boyhood) and Oscar-winner Julianne Moore (Still Alice) star in this delightfully witty, wry comedy from writer-director Rebecca Miller (The Ballad of Jack and Rose), highly acclaimed after its premiere at Toronto.

Maggie (Gerwig) is single, but desperately wants to have a child. Just as she is embarking on her plan for artificial insemination, she meets John (Hawke), an unhappy academic married to Danish critical theorist Georgette (Moore); and, falling in love, adjusts her plans for motherhood.

Three years later, she revisits her life and realises that, while everything has worked out more or less according to her plan, she isn’t happy. Why? And what meddlesome schemes will she concoct next?

With hilarious supporting turns from SNL’s Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph (as married couple Tony and Felicia, Maggie’s best friends) and a particularly adroit comic performance from Moore – who really commits to Georgette’s accent and absurd eccentricities – it’s perhaps Miller’s best-received film to date and certainly her lightest; a smart, goofy and offbeat delight.
