When Mae is hired to work for the world's largest and most powerful tech and social media company, 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, 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.
When Congresswoman Santos is speaking on stage, the lighting on her face starkly changes between shots. In wide shots, the top half of her head is cut off by the amphitheater's shadow, whereas closer shots are evenly lit, as if she'd stepped backward or forward every time the shot changed. See more »
We get that the industry wants to make a profit, not just from The Circle, but any novel story being "serialized", But sequel-madness is RUINING the viewer experience and dumbing society down. When you see movies like "the circle", you are more and more realizing that the actual "content" delivered is LESS and LESS, instead you get more "texture" or filler.
The story and implications of the Circle could have been great. Privacy is THE topic of our times. Unfortunately, the industry wants to deliver the same amount of content in a book or novel via 3-4 blockbuster films....the sequels.
As a result, we got a lot of texture, but little story development in The circle. All that, in TWO HOURS.
