REVIEW OF THE CIRCLE 2017
THE CIRCLE cast of Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks), Mae Holland (Emma Watson), Kalden (John Boyega), Mercer (Ellar Coltrane), Mae’s father (Bill Paxton), Annie (Karen Gillan) and Tom Stenton (Patton Oswalt). The movie underwent reshoots about four weeks ago, but STX/EuropaCorp is still sticking to their April 28, 2017, release date.
The movie CIRCLE directed and written by James Ponsoldt based on Dave Eggers’ 2013 novel. The story is about Mae Holland (Emma Watson) who is appointed to work for the world’s largest and most powerful tech and social media company, and she sees it as an opportunity of a lifetime. As she rises through the ranks, she is encouraged by the company’s founder, Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks), to engage in a groundbreaking experiment that pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics and ultimately her personal freedom. Her participation in the experiment, and every decision she makes begin to affect the lives and future of her friends, family and that of humanity.
The trailer for movie dropped on Thursday, and we are kind of freaked out. In the film adaptation of Dave Eggers’s 2013 novel, Emma Watson stars as Mae, a recent college graduate who slowly starts to realize her new tech and social media company, The Circle, isn’t as perfect as it might seem. After her employers encourage everyone to live their lives with 100 percent transparency, Mae quickly realizes that nobody is safe. If Watson’s performance doesn’t win you over, rest assured the cast also includes Oscar winner Tom Hanks and Star Wars’ John Boyega. Catch the trailer above before the film hits theaters on April 28, 2017.
