When Mae is hired to work for the world's largest and most powerful tech and social media company, she sees it as an opportunity of a lifetime. As she rises through the ranks, she is encouraged by the company's founder, Eamon Bailey, to engage in a groundbreaking experiment that pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics and ultimately her personal freedom. Her participation in the experiment, and every decision she makes, begin to affect the lives and future of her friends, family and that of humanity.
The lead role of Mae was first offered to Alicia Vikander, which according to her, was one of the three roles offered simultaneously alongside the roles of Maria in Assassin's Creed (2016) and Heather in Jason Bourne (2016). Due to fan factor, she opted to do Bourne instead, thus having the producers moving on to casting second choice Emma Watson instead. See more »
When Mae puts on the body camera, it's described as "total transparency" of her life. Yet she can choose to turn it off for bathroom breaks (or to have secret meetings in the bathroom), so it's not a total record of everything she's done or said. See more »
Absolutely awful. Awful plot, awful writing, abysmal acting. I'm curious as to whether Tom Hanks, someone I admire greatly, and who actually did a great job acting despite the poor dialogue, even read the script before signing on? Surely not? He and Boyega were great - a testament to their skills. EW was so abysmally bad, It was painful to watch. That's all I shall say. What a mess. Don't waste your time, and especially not your money.
