Emma Watson says making her new movie "The Circle," about a fictitious social media giant, had been a tough and vulnerable experience that brought home issues of ethics and the boundaries of privacy in an increasingly public age. Watson, 27, grew up in the public eye as a child actress in the "Harry Potter" movies, but the British star said she had not fully considered the implications of mass data collection, online activities, and personal freedom before making "The Circle". Director James Ponsoldt said he was inspired to make the film after reading what he called Eggers' "darkly hilarious" 2013 book, and by the birth of his first child in an age where everything can be documented.
