Duration: 1 hr, 50 min
Comments: A young woman manages to land a job with a very large Internet company. Like Google, the leaders of this monster encourage its employees to spend as much time as possible on campus. Their claim to fame is a single account that allows access to many other services and accounts, from social media to e-mail. The main character quickly becomes a focal point in the company. Intent on doing good, individual privacy becomes threatened by her projects.
This movie should serve as a warning. Instead, it encourages the use of cameras everywhere, and the recording of individuals' actions. The ending of this film especially creeps me out. Welcome to a possible "new world".
