—Sarah M., Fall River, Mass. A: Your wish is granted. In her new movie, The Cir­cle, cur­rently in the­aters, she plays Mae, a re­cent col­lege grad who quickly climbs the cor­po­rate lad­der at a pow­er­ful tech and so­cial me­dia com­pany. But the higher she gets, the more Mae be­gins to ques­tion her em­ployer’s trou­bling poli­cies on pri­vacy and sur­veil­lance. Wat­son, 27, says the role made her look at her own use of so­cial me­dia. “We have to make sure it is use­ful to us and not some­thing that owns us,” says the ac­tress.
