Watch the circle 2017 full movie online free. A young tech worker takes a job at a powerful Internet corporation, quickly rises up the company’s ranks, and soon finds herself in a perilous situation concerning privacy, surveillance and freedom. She comes to learn that her decisions and actions will determine the future of humanity.
That is to say, we probably already live in a scarier world, filled with stranger horrors, than the one The Circle presents as a cautionary tale. Given the speed and unpredictability of change in this arena, it’s reasonable to wonder if a big-budget feature film, much less one based on a four-year-old novel (by Dave Eggers, who co-wrote this adaptation’s screenplay), can hope to speak to the needs of the moment. In its quicker-turnaround, nugget-sized parables, Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror TV series may be better equipped.
Yet it would be absurd if the movies didn’t address the massive experiment humanity is undertaking, and this film — with its big stars and easily digested moral dilemmas — is the kind of “issue”-inflected entertainment that could stimulate some thought about the services we use and which use us online. In any event, the pic should mark a commercial step up for Ponsoldt, who has enjoyed critical support for indies like The End of the Tour and The Spectacular Now but will now have his first crack at Middle America.
Emma Watson plays Mae, a trusting soul just starting an entry-level job at Circle, a tech giant with similarities to many companies, primarily Facebook. Its innovation is TruYou — a single-identity, one-password solution for everything you do online, which eliminates anonymity along the way. “The chaos of the web made simple,” as she puts it. Run by dual chiefs — stiff, biz-minded Tom Stenton (Patton Oswalt) and folksy, Jobsian Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks) — the company is held in awe by the public and revered by the Kool-Aid drinkers employed there.
Early scenes of Mae trying to adjust to Circle’s corporate culture are none too subtle about the expectations that are thrust upon her with a smile. Any customer evaluation that isn’t 100 percent favorable is cause for concern; all those evening and weekend parties are totally optional and “just for fun,” but your absence will be noted. And what do you mean you spent the weekend kayaking? I didn’t see any posts about that on your feed.
