x"The Circle "

Mae (Emma Watson) Mae is in a dead end dreary temp job. Her car barely runs and she is reduced to living at home with her parents. Then, through a connection in friend Annie (Karen Gillan), Mae lands an interview at The Circle, a hip-and-trendy tech organization and lands a job at the Orwellian social-media company that preaches the value of complete transparency and inspires a cult-like devotion in its employees.

She quickly rises through the ranks of the world’s largest tech & social media company, and is encouraged by the company’s messianic founder Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks) to engage in a groundbreaking experiment that pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics and ultimately her personal freedom.) However, she soon learns that the corporation and its are hiding a nefarious agenda - what is Bailey presenting: a surveillance state at the hands of privatized, mass-produced micro-cameras. Mae realizes she may be in over her head is somthing very dangerous.
