Facebook is the biggest social networking site in the world. Its creator, Mark Zuckerberg, is the youngest billionaire in the world. And the movie The Social Network focusses on how Mark conceived the idea of Facebook, and the consequences thereof in his personal life.

The idea of a bunch of techno-geeks sitting on their PCs writing code and creating programs might not sound like the most exciting of ideas, but with a first-rate biting script from Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men and The West Wing) and astute inspired direction from David Fincher (Seven and Fight Club), The Social Network manages to exceed all expectations as it gives valuable insight into the methodology Zuckerberg employed when expanding his fast-growing website.

The plot isn't predictably straightforward, as the non-linear storytelling method has us witnessing two lawsuits facing Zuckerberg, and then flashing back in time to see what actually happened. The performances are superb, especially Eisenberg as the socially inept Zuckerberg and Andrew Garfield as his best friend, Eduardo Saverin. Saverin is the character who invokes our sympathy the most, but even Zuckerberg makes us not totally hate him either.

The story makes some wonderful detours and offers some surprising twists and as a regular Facebook user, it's interesting to see how it all began. The Social Network is one of the best-reviewed movies of the year, and it's easy to see why. Definitely an Oscar contender come February 2011. A masterpiece! (5 out of 5, by Carlisle Johnson)

On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea.

In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication.

A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history... but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications.

(Winner of 3 Academy Awards, including Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Editing and Best Musical Score)
