The Circle, like Eggers' books, glances against some truths, sometimes with wit. I laughed the right way at crisp first scenes, which follow the indoctrination of Watson's Mae, hired as a "Customer Experience" representative. Millions of office workers already understand that, for them, the dystopia will arrive wearing a lanyard. Tom Hanks is preeningly funny in the role of the company's co-founder and public face, and a setpiece showcasing the near impossibility of hiding from the internet is imbued with power thanks to Watson's face, lit from behind by a projector, as Mae stands on a stage staring up a screen, her back to a cheering audience.
