The Circle

Directed by James Ponsoldt

Release Date: April 28

Starring Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, John Boyega
Taking a page out of Denis Villeneuve’s playbook, critically acclaimed American filmmaker James Ponsoldt — best known for 2012 drinking drama Smashed, coming-of-age indie flick The Spectacular Now and David Foster Wallace biopic The End of the Tour — is taking his striking shooting style and subtle hand to the world of sci-fi with The Circle, a Tom Hanks and Emma Watson-starring feature about privacy, surveillance and freedom, based on the book of the same name by award-winner Dave Eggers. Considering the current political climate, the film couldn’t have come at a better time. (Elevation)
