The Circle fails on many accounts, but the message it is trying to send does hold some weight. We are living in a time of social media and computer technology. This film touches on the fact that all the technology is reaching a point where people can’t function without it. Privacy is as an all-time low. Communication between people is widespread but impersonal. We are reliant on our technology to get us through the day. The social invention that Watson’s character experiments with in the movie is fairly feasible and not too far-fetched. We seem to be getting close in society to being in a place where someone will have an option to broadcast ever minute of their life to the world. The sad part is that it’s fairly conceivable that this sort of thing would attract many followers.
