The Social Network, the story of the youngest billionaire in the world – Mark Zuckerberg.
I have to tell you – this movie is flawless. From start to finish I was completely immersed into its storyline. I guess it’s because I can relate to this film, everyone can. Parents, teenagers, anyone can get wired in to this spectacular film.
Social networking has affected so many people across the world – this movie simply gives you the story behind it. Where did Facebook come from? Why do you love Facebook so much? Why is everyone and their grandmother on Facebook?
This is the story about the people behind it, and the young minds that changed the world.
Mark Zuckerberg is played by Jesse Eisenberg and finds the perfect mix between brilliant and awkward. His character is driven, cutthroat, all while still being pretty funny.
He is fun to watch from start to finish – and makes for a great underdog story of young people breaking through industry ageism.
For a movie of mostly talking – it held my attention really well. Audiences will often find themselves lost in all the nerd slang and social networking lingo, but it’s fun. It’s written incredibly well – and the entire script never once loses its excitement.
Zuckerberg is portrayed as a little too evil for my liking. I could see a lot of people walking away from this film thinking he is a bit of a jerk – but this is Hollywood right? There is more thank likely a good chunk of dramatization with the story of Facebook – but I’m having fun on this ride of a movie.
The whole movie is great – everything about it. The entire thing just seemed to fall together into one incredible film. Go out to see it!
And don’t forget to tell your 300 friends on Facebook what you thought of it.
