TOM HANKS TALKS ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA USE
Posted On Jan 20, 2018
At the World Premiere of The Circle at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, Tom Hanks talks about the messages in the film. The Circle tells the story of a young woman who lands the perfect job at a leading tech company and becomes part of a corrupt corporate agenda regarding privacy and freedom in the social media world. “You can look into this film and say how much I am configured into the reality of this movie and in actuality, we are all just a little bit and it is a fascinating examination of the real thing,” says the venerable actor who plays the part of the CEO in the movie. “Dave Eggers wrote the novel in 2013, and we actually thought it was a little closer to the events it should have been today.” Regarding his own social media contribution, he does not think it will change the world. “But it does represent an interesting study of a part of life,” he muses. “You get out what you put in. If you are going for whimsy you get whimsy but if you lob bombs, you are going to get explosions.” We agree.
