For the third and final movie review I chose to watch the movie The Social Network. I personally enjoyed this movie and would watch it again. I thought the movie was brilliantly cast and directed.
The Social Network was released in 2010 and is the story of how Facebook came to be. It traces Mark Zuckerberg’s journey in developing Facebook and all the trials and tribulations he faced to bring the platform to what it is today. The story begins with how Mark Zuckerberg, played by Jesse Eisenberg, got the idea for Facebook which occurred after his girlfriend dumped him. He then began working with friends to develop the website at Harvard but relationships began to fall apart which ultimately led to Mark Zuckerberg getting sued. The movie also explains the smaller websites that Mark created and worked on that slowly developed/inspired the Facebook that is live today.
I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who was looking for a movie to watch. I use Facebook every single day so it was very fascinating to see how the extremely popular social media site was created. I personally am not a fan of why the platform was created, however, in the end I am extremely happy it was founded. I also did not realize how many enemies Mark Zuckerberg made in the process. I know it is difficult to rise to the top but I did not expect him to butt heads with so many people. I also thought Jesse Eisenberg portrayed Mark Zuckerberg in a brilliant manner as his little nuances provided a great character depth. I could really picture Mark actually speaking and acting as Jesse did in the movie. I thought this was a great production and deserves 5 star reviews!
