Good Kill

Lists: None yet

Brief Synopsis: "In the shadowy world of drone warfare, combat unfolds like a video game–only with real lives at stake. After six tours of duty, Air Force pilot Tom Egan (Ethan Hawke) now fights the Taliban from an air-conditioned bunker in the Nevada desert. But as he yearns to get back in the cockpit of a real plane and becomes increasingly troubled by the collateral damage he causes each time he pushes a button, Egan’s nerves—and his relationship with his wife (Mad Men's January Jones)—begin to unravel."

Bryan Lienesch49 - The political messaging in this "drama" is so shamelessly one-sided, I've seen propoganda pieces that are more objective.
