THE SOCIAL NETWORK
2010, Sony Repertory, 120 min, USA, Dir: David Fincher

You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies. Spurred on by a bitter taste for revenge after his girlfriend dumps him, computer whiz Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) creates a social networking site that evolves into an international phenomenon: Facebook. He and his partners quickly discover, however, that success comes at a very high price. Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s Oscar-winning script recalls both the rapid-fire newspaper comedies of the classic studio era and the smart adult dramas of the 1970s while remaining contemporary. Costarring Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake and Armie Hammer, and featuring an edgy original score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (which was also an Oscar winner).
