Tech movie: The Circle

We love tech movies. The Victor crew recently got to see The Circle. The main characters are played by Emma Watson (Mae) and Tom Hanks (Bailey). Mae leaves her hum-drum job join a tech/social media company called the Circle.

At first Mae is reticent about sharing her life but is pushed by co-workers to push the boundaries and become more transparent. As she becomes more transparent, she rises through the ranks from customer service to being part of the “inner circle.” She eventually has people all over the world following her, getting to know her, her friends, her family, and all she does.

As the movie moves along, eventually tragedy happens. Without giving away the full plot, through this tragedy and people she meets, she exposes the top people of the Circle and keeps them from hiding their secrets.

The taglines: Knowing is good. Knowing everything is better.
Some other lines are: Secrets are lies. Sharing is caring. Privacy is theft.
