After spending eight hours a day flying these plans, he returns home to his wife (January Jones), whom he constantly argues with while numbing his stress and pain with alcohol.

The film, directed by Andrew Niccol from his own script, also stars January Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Bruce Greenwood, and Jake Abel. Producers are Nicolas Chartier and Zev Foreman of Voltage Pictures and Mark Amin of Sobini Films.
The story centers on a Hawke’s character, who works eight hours each day fighting the War on Terror by remote control and the remaining time at his suburban home, where he feuds with his wife, (portrayed by Jones).
In his review for Variety, Guy Lodge called the film a “smart, quietly pulsating contempo war drama.”
“Good Kill” had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

There was a time that a brainy anti-drone movie like "Good Kill" would be mid-priced studio fare. Kiwi native Andrew Niccol, who launched his Hollywood career by writing "The Truman Show," is one of those maverick indies who writes the movies that interest him, from "Gattaca" and "Lord of War" to "In Time." And Ethan Hawke is eager to collaborate with the filmmaker, even when the global marketplace is resistant to thoughtful original movies like "Good Kill." Returning for his third go-round with Niccol, in this film Hawke stars as a former Top Gun who is benched in a Las Vegas military base trailer piloting drone aircraft. He goes home to his wife (January Jones) every night, but dropping bombs in Yemen and Afghanistan from 7,000 miles away is not his idea of how to fight a war--especially when the CIA gets involved. The film also stars Zoe Kravitz, Bruce Greenwood, »

Zoë Kravitz hit the town with her mom, Lisa Bonet, in La on Thursday night, and the two looked more alike than ever. Zoë shared a cute photo of the two at a book launch hosted by Michael Kors via Instagram, writing, "Night out with my best gal." Though Zoë has clearly inherited her mom's good genes (not to mention those of her equally-hot dad, Lenny Kravitz), she and Lisa have been looking even more identical since the Divergent actress recently began showing off a new appearance. Late last month, Zoe was spotted shopping in La rocking a cropped sweater, ripped jeans, and the waist-length box braids that her mother helped make famous in the early '90s; almost 30 years ago, Lisa starred as the free-spirited Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show (and later A Different World). Since then, Lisa - who is now married to Game of Thrones star »
It looks like the apple didn't fall far from the tree… Zoë Kravitz shared a photo of herself with her famous mom, Lisa Bonet, out at a party in Los Angeles last night and it's hard to believe there's a 21-year age difference between the two. "Night out with my best gal," Zoë wrote alongside the sweet pic. The two lovely ladies are both seen wearing similar hairstyles, with nearly identical facial features. But the Hunger Games star didn't just get her good looks from her mama…after all, her dad Lenny Kravitz isn't exactly chopped liver, either. In fact, the rocker is 50 years old and honestly doesn't look a day older than he did when »

Fatal Irony: Is There Anything Good About This Kill?
Nearly two decades after collaborating on the shrewd and subtly realized sci-fi allegory, Gattaca, Ethan Hawke again teams up with writer/director Andrew Niccol for Good Kill, which details the experiences of a drone pilot struggling with the implications of his vocation. It, like its predecessor, is an acutely analytical, slyly stylized work with social relevance. But unlike that more metaphorical genre piece, this very literal, accessible film has more of a manufactured, politically pointed feel to it.
Niccol, a director that’s made a career out of dissecting the fundamental ideals of socio-cultural trends and examining their inherent, fatal flaws, is again using the medium as a sounding board for social discussion. Having recently assessed the more oblique, ideological nature of the one-percent ethos (In Time) and the resurgence of Communist values (The Host), he’s shifted his focus to »

Looking just like mom! A quick glance at Zoe Kravitz strolling down a Manhattan street on Monday, Sept. 22, may cause a double take.

Traveling back from the Toronto Film Festival meant spending a fair amount of time in airports, and in each of those airports, the same revolving barrage of news went by, including discussions of new drone missions over Syria. It made it very unsettling as I had "Good Kill" still bouncing about inside me, one of the last movies I saw at the fest this year, and as timely a film as I could imagine seeing. Written and directed by Andrew Niccol, the film is a close-up character portrait of Tommy Egan, a former fighter jet pilot who has been relocated to a Las Vegas suburban neighborhood. Every day, he reports to a local base where he and his crew file into a small trailer and then spend their shift watching and occasionally killing people on the other side of the world. At the end of their shifts, they get to »
