The Circle, an adaptation of the book that goes by the same name, is about a woman, Mae, who takes up a job at an eminent tech firm called the Circle and engages her life with an enigmatic man. Essentially a modern-day morality story, the film sketches the life of Mae as she succeeds in her rewarding job in the social media company. Soon she is encouraged by the founder of the company, Bailey to spend her own life in absolute transparency. Everything about everyone needs to be shared- such is the mantra of the company. The firm gives rise to a new identity in the online world linking together different aspects like banking, social media, and emails- revealing a whole new operating system based on complete lucidity. However, their lives soon fall into peril in this incredibly translucent world where information is gathered for surveillance; thus making privacy non-existent.
