A movie about the creation of Facebook. It sounds so mundane, doesn’t it? Then again, apparently the book that the movie is based on has plenty of intrigue, friendship, backstabbing, sex, and murder. Okay, maybe not murder, but probably almost-murder, or at least, thought-about-doing-murder, though not necessarily actual murder. It would have been cool if it did, though.
Based on the non-fiction novel by Ben Mezrich, “The Social Network” chronicles the founding of the social-networking website Facebook by two college friends (Jesse Eisenberg and Joseph Mazzello), whose friendship suffers as their project grows in fame.
Starring Joseph Mazzello, Jesse Eisenberg, Rashida Jones, Brenda Song, Rooney Mara, Justin Timberlake, Andrew Garfield, Malese Jow, Max Minghella, Trevor Wright, Dakota Johnson, and directed by David Fincher.
