The Social Network
Directed by David Fincher
Adapted from Ben Mezrich’s 2009 book, The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal, The Social Network is a drama about Mark Zuckerberg and the founding of Facebook. The dialogue, written by Aaron Sorkin, is fast-paced and invariably clever. The acting and cinematography are convincing and unobjectionable. The story itself, is well-crafted, but sometimes feels too clever by half.
