Movie: The Social Network (2010)

You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.

The Social Network (2010) is a story about the founding of the social networking site, Facebook by Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg, Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield) and some others in 2004 while they were still Harvard undergrads.

Six years later and with 500 million Facebook users around the world, Mark Zuckerberg is now the youngest billionaire in history.

"You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies" is an apt tagline for this movie. Zuckerberg's success does lead to both personal and legal complications as shown in the movie although some of the characters are fictional.

I personally think that "The Social Network" is an interesting, eye-opening movie. We're shown the journey of Facebook's founding and the personal issues and legal complications that Zuckerberg and gang faced before and after their globally successful venture.

"The Social Network" is touted as "the movie that defines the entire social networking generation", the generation that thrives online. Apart from the founding of Facebook, this movie also depicts strong feelings revolving friendship, ambition, revenge, and betrayal.
For Mark Zuckerberg, the intense desire to succeed and change the world puts all sorts of his relationships, especially that with Eduardo Saverin, his best friend and business partner, at stake.

Overall, this movie deserves to be one of the must-watch movies of the year. Powerhouse performance by Jesse Eisenberg (as Zuckerberg), Andrew Garfield (as Saverin), and Justin Timberlake (as Sean Parker), expressive dialogues laced with humor and sarcasm, and good inter-connected subplots with flashbacks -- all these contribute to the success of this movie. Highly recommended!
