On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history… but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications.
Director: David Fincher
Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Andrew Garfield
Review: The best of Aaron Sorkin’s razor-sharp writing and David Fincher’s visual style come together to bring to life the riveting true story of the birth of Facebook in a film that resonates now more than ever. The Social Network is splendid entertainment from a master storyteller, packed with energetic incident and surprising performances. In its cold, almost forensic way, this is as tense and exciting as it is absorbing. It’s a miracle, really.
Verdict: Super Worth the Popcorn
