1A Movie Club Sees 'The Circle'

Welcome to the 1A Movie Club! It's a new regular series where we virtually watch a selected movie with our listeners, then discuss the film and its themes on-air. For our first installment, we saw "The Circle," a movie based on the Dave Eggers' novel of the same name that stars Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, Patton Oswalt and John Boyega. The plot revolves around a successful and powerful tech company that makes disturbing use of users' private information. This conversation will contain many, many movie spoilers so please be advised. Discussing "The Circle" with Joshua Johnson is John Horn, host of "The Frame" on KPCC, Laura Sydell, digital culture correspondent at NPR and Cade Metz, senior writer at WIRED.
