This film basically tells the story of how students from Harvard University created Facebook, probably the world most famous and wealthy website of all time. It shows how Harvard undergrad and computer programming wizard Mark Zukerberg became the worlds youngest billionaire. With the tagline you dont get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.
Given that Facebook is what it is today, its been a long time coming for a movie to be made about its origins. That movie, The Social Network, is an interesting and visually rich exploration of the events that led up to arguably the most influential invention of a generation.
The Social Network is a gripping, expertly made and wonderfully performed character study, a very modern story about some very classic themes. This is a very good inspirational film, and will give you a slight insight as to how Facebook came about and how Mark Zukerberg became an accidental billionaire.
