List Rules Vote for the best The Circle movie quotes

The Circle movie quotes help tell the story of a young woman who gets wrapped up in a tech company with questionable morals. The thriller was directed by James Ponsoldt using a screenplay he adapted with Dave Eggers, who wrote the novel on which the movie is based. The Circle opened theatrically in the United States on April 28, 2017.

In The Circle, Mae Holland (Emma Watson) takes a job at tech company The Circle. While things go well at the new job and she's quickly promoted, there are clues that everything isn't as innocent as it seems. Her coworkers seemingly know about her father's (Bill Paxton) medical condition and offer to cover his medical expenses. 

Mae takes the Circle up on that offer and takes a new position working with developer Ty (John Boyega) as well as company co-founders Eamon (Tom Hanks) and Tom (Patton Oswalt). But this leads Mae to learn that the Circle is far from innocent and is surveilling the entire world, with sinister motives. This puts Mae in a situation where she might be the only one who can stop the Circle.

The Circle joined theaters in the spring of 2017 alongside the likes of The Promise, Gifted, Going in Style, and Smurfs: The Lost Village.

Ty Lafitte: I didn't create this. This isn't what I had in mind. Things at the Circle, they need to change. Everything's recorded, seen, broadcast, stored and analyzed here. They can use it however they see fit, not matter what its cost. 

Ty explains to Mae that when he built the Circle's surveillance, he didn't intend for it to be used the way the Circle is using it. He wants this use to stop and urges Mae to join his mission to do just that.
