The Circle: it doesn’t seem that director James Ponsoldt (along with co-writer Dave Eggers) knew exactly (or were convinced by) what they were trying to say with this film. As such, the main character moves along the plot making little sense and bad decisions, by her internal logic, time and time again. It’s hard to care for such character, even if it’s played with charm and intelligence by Emma Watson. Tom Hanks is a good choice to play this character, as he exudes trustability, but it’s a flat performance nevertheless. Cinematographer Matthew Libatique’s free-flowing camera is a good match to the subject, as is also the case of Danny Elfman’s score.
