The Circle

Another airline movie choice was The Circle.  You may remember I read this book and reviewed it here.  I liked the book in general and I like Emma Watson as an actress, so I decided to check it out.  The movie tells essentially the same story as the book: a young woman gets a job at a large Google type company where social media is everything.  The company believes everyone should be searchable and connected and in every aspect of their life.

The movie leaves out many subplots, including any romantic love interests and the ending is actually completely different than the book.  In the book, Mae decides to stay loyal to the company and in the movie, she sells them out.  Maybe the change was to make her character more likable since it is pretty clear the company is basically eliminating any sort of privacy rights.  I suppose this was an okay airplane movie, but I would recommend the book more.
