Eye In the Sky

A lieutenant general (Alan Rickman) and a colonel (Helen Mirren) face political opposition after ordering a drone missile strike to take out a group of suicide bombers in Nairobi, Kenya.
Release date: April 1, 2016 (USA)
Director: Gavin Hood
Starring: Helen Mirren; Aaron Paul; Alan Rickman; Barkhad Abdia, Jeremy Northam; Iain Glen

It was a well done movie, reflecting the steps involved in ordering a drone strike, requiring international cooperation, changes in the mission, and especially, evaluating collateral damage. The techy spy stuff was fun, too.
