    The Social Network does an amazing job bringing the story of Facebook to the big screen and keeping it interesting!

     
    Critically Acclaimed director David Fincher (Fight Club, Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and Emmy Award winning writer Aron Sorkin (“The West Wing”) team up to bring you their latest masterpiece, The Social Network. The film, based on the book The Accidental Billionaires, stars talented newcomers Jesse Eisenburg, Andrew Garfield, Rooney Mara. Pop star Justin Timberlake also appears in the movie.
     
    Set in 2003, Jessie stars as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, a Harvard student who is as brilliant as he is resentful and disliked. After making a name for himself by creating a website so popular that it crashes web servers around campus, a group of friends decide to hire Mark to help them program a social networking site for Harvard students. 

     
    Mark, however has his own agenda and goes rogue with his buddy Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield) to create Facebook.That leads to big lawsuits as it becomes the hottest thing on the Internet since the celebrity sex tape.
     
    The Social Network is a very well-crafted movie. Rather then bog the audience down with technical data, David focuses more on the drama and human condition. He wonderfully paces back and forth between testimony given by the people suing Mark and the story of how they ended up at a particular law firm. We see the friends passionately working towards a dream and how that dream inevitably turns in to a nightmare of scandal, litigation, betrayal, broken hearts and major feuds as Facebook becomes a multibillion-dollar juggernaut enriching only some. You don’t need an Ivy league MBA to understand what is happening or why something is important to the story.
     
    Aron’s writing and is witty and brilliant. The on-screen performances are all top-notch—especially Justin, who will surprise a lot of people with his performance in the film.
