|The Social Network|
Why are we attracted to successful people? Because in every success, there always a story behind it. Whether it’s a hard work that paid off, a steel of determination that overcomes all the obstacles or the sad life ones have to endure just to become successful. Either way, it’s driving me to the cinema to watch the story behind Facebook.
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.
The story is articulately made with the character of Mark Zuckerberg being played well by Jesse Eisenberg (I always remember him as the guy from Zombieland). Justin Timberlake also was in the movie and made me feel like punching myself in the face because for the first time in my life, I think he played the character of Sean Parker well. Andrew Garfield and Armie Hammer also played their respective characters well.
All in all, the movie is very well made and really fun to watch it! 4/5 stars from me!
