The Circle: Emma Watson facing the power of social networks, our critic

Cinema 13 July, 2017

It is today that leaves in the rooms the new film with Emma Watson and Tom Hanks, The Circle. So, do we have to see the film?

What if social networks completely controlled our lives? Shortly after the release of The Beauty and the Beast, Emma Watson is back at the movies in a very different role. In The Circle, where you can find several excerpts on melty, she exchanges her novels for the new technology since her character Mae, integrates a highly acclaimed company, The Circle, a kind of mix between Facebook and Google. The Circle is the place to be. A place where all the employees seem to blossom and where everything is at their disposal. Inspired by the eponymous novel, The Circle will plunge us into a world where social networks have become the number one communication system between individuals and it is only the beginning … But then, is The Circle worth the detour?

If you find the world of social networks exciting, there is no doubt that you will enjoy this film that raises key questions about privacy and in particular what must be from the private sphere and / Or the public sphere. Should we share everything with the whole world? This is certainly the main question posed by The Circle and that will pose Mae after joining the company where she will discover the back of the scenery. Emma Watson is convincing in the role of Mae, this young woman full of convictions and far from predictable. Indeed, if the film knows a few lengths can certainly not be blamed for being agreed and you will surely be surprised by the turn that events will take! Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Karen Gillan and Patton Oswalt are also casting this movie that will not let you see social networks in the same way.
