Genuinely creepy
27 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Perhaps the most compelling thing about seeing The Circle, is the glow of people checking their phones as soon as the credits rolled. This is going to be a film people claim they understand when they don't even understand the controlled lives they are living.

In all a genuinely creepy film carried by Emma Watson, not something for your average Marvel fan though.
