The Circle (2017)

Director James Ponsoldt shows us a world where technology and creativity work together to create an illusion of transparency.

An interesting concept, it would work more as a short film rather than a full length feature, as many sub plots were left unexplored.

Performances are dependable with Tom Hanks being his usual charismatic self, in a character that has little gray area. Emma Watson is more nuanced in a role that shows the vulnerability, ambition and intelligence of her character.

A decent flight watch!

2/5
