In year 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. Director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin comes The Social Network, a film that proves you don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.


Jesse Eisenberg was near perfection acting the role of Mark Zuckerberg, and Andrew Garfield was shockingly amazing. Justin Timberlake steals every scene he’s in, and hats off to Armie Hammer who plays both Cameron Winklevoss and his twin brother Tyler with natural ease which is no small feat considering he had to play off himself.

David Fincher’s direction this time seems pretty invisible to the untrained eye, but obviously to be able to make a bunch of nerds sitting by a computer interesting and compelling, as this film is, must have been not an easy task.Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross music mapped on to the intensity of the scenes and defines the scene very easily for the audience. Sorkin’s script is a marvel of fast-paced dialogs and funny. Jeff Cronenweth’s cinematography was stunning.

Survi Verdict:

A Film which absolutely everyone should see regardless is he/she is on a social networking website or not. Movie powerfully and masterfully made with an enormous amount of talent behind it. The Social Network is definitely one of the timeliest, intelligent and engaging films I came across in a while.
