The Social Network film coming soon to a cinema near you…or a laptop screen
The film The Social Network was directed by West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin, and David Fincher recognized producer of films such as Fight Club and Panic Room. The two men set out to make a film reflecting the establishment of social media wonder child Facebook. The movie portrays Mark Zuckenbergs College years at Harvard University conceiving Facebook together with his co founder Eduardo Saverin. Although the film is focusing on the creation of Facebook , Mark Zuckerberg or any other of the founders have shared no relation with the making of this film. The story is set out based on the Accidental Billionaires (2009) book by Ben Mezrich, which on the other had been consulted by co founder Eduardo Saverine.The book by Mezrich was the original account for the screenplay of the film, although heavily criticized for giving fictitious representations, allowing made up characters and dialogues. It has been argued as projecting Mark Zuckerberg in an unfavorable light.
The plot of the film looks not only at the rise of Facebook , but essentially the legal trials and processes that followed. Saverine whom originally had a thirty percent share , was after being slowly excluded by Zuckerberg and Napster creator Sean Parker , left with a meager 0.03 percent. Parker whom later in the process had joined in as the president of Facebook, begins to manage the site together with Zuckerberg and other founder Dustin Moskovitz, setting off one of the many legal processes taking part against Zuckerberg and Facebook. One which in the end leaves Eduardo Saverin with a settlement allowing him instead five percent as well as reimbursing his title as Facebook co founder.
The film has recieved great appraisal from critics and is suggested a cult film, as it documents one of the greatest creations within our online social lives. The film is casted with none other than our pop-darling Justin Timberlake playing the role as Napster founder Sean Parker as well as Jesse Eisenberg and his almost incriminatingly similar features, playing Mark Zuckerberg. Eduardo Saverin is played by Andrew Garfield, and also featured in the film as Zuckerberg ex girlfriend Erica , is Rooney Mara seen most recently in horror film Nightmare on Elm Street (2010). The movie had its US release on the 1st of October, and its online release probably earlier:) Enjoy!
