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.

The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco of Sundance Selects/IFC Films with CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.
