The Social Network

A Harvard student creates a global social network, but faces legal battles and betrayal.


Why watch this film?

A story about innovation, theft, success, envy, sex, exaggeration and court. This is the beginning of Facebook, in a well-directed movie by David Fincher. Of course, there are some poetic liberties, but they make this story more interesting as entertainment. The script is great and rounded (including winning the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay).
