David Fincher's The Social Network is the stunning tale of a new breed of cultural insurgent: a punk genius who sparked a revolution and changed the face of human interaction for a generation, and perhaps forever. Shot through with emotional brutality and unexpected humour, this superbly crafted film chronicles the formation of Facebook and the battles over ownership that followed upon the website's unfathomable success.
With a complex, incisive screenplay by Aaron Sorkin and a brilliant cast including Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake, The Social Network bears witness to the birth of an idea that rewove the fabric of society even as it unravelled the friendship of its creators.
Director David Fincher from Fight Club and Seven teams with screenwriter Aaron Sorkin from The West Wing to explore the meaning of success in the early 21st century from the perspectives of the technological innovators who revolutionised the way we all communicate. The year was 2003. As prohibitively expensive technology became affordable to the masses and the Internet made it easy to stay in touch with people who were halfway across the world, Harvard undergrad and computer programming wizard Mark Zuckerberg, Jesse Eisenberg in a fury of blogging and programming launched a website with the potential to alter the very fabric of our society. At the time, Zuckerberg was just six years away from making his first million. But his hearty payday would come at a high price, because despite all of Zuckerberg's wealth and success, his personal life began to suffer as he became mired in legal disputes, and discovered that many of the 500 million people he had befriended during his rise to the top were eager to see him fall. Chief among that growing list of detractors was Zuckerberg's former college friend Eduardo Saverin played by Andrew Garfield, whose generous financial contributions to Facebook served as the seed that helped the company to sprout. And some might argue that Zuckerberg's bold venture wouldn't have evolved into the cultural juggernaut that it ultimately became had Napster founder Sean Parker played by Justin Timberlake not spread the word about Facebook to the venture capitalists from Silicon Valley. Meanwhile, the Winklevoss twins Armie Hammer and Josh Pence engage Zuckerberg in a fierce courtroom battle for ownership of Facebook that left many suspecting the young entrepreneur might have let his greed eclipse his better judgment. THE SOCIAL NETWORK is based on the book The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich.

|USA Today Claudia Puig The film owes much of its success to the inspired pairing of Fincher and Sorkin.|
|The New York Times Manohla Dargis When Mr. Eisenberg makes Mark's face go blank, the character seems scarily emptied out: it's a subtly great, at times unsettling, performance.|
|Variety Justin Chang Continues Fincher's fascinating transition from genre filmmaker extraordinaire to indelible chronicler of our times.|
|Miami Herald Rene Rodriguez Delivers the heady, rib-tickling rush of an action picture, and it gradually builds to an emotional wallop that blindsides you.|
|ReelViews James Berardinelli Eisenberg, one of those young actors who has existed just below the radar for several years now (he was the lead in both "Zombieland" and "Adventureland," not to be confused with one another), deserves an Oscar for this dead-on portrayal of a temperamental genius.|
|Salon.com Andrew O'Hehir All I can say about Timberlake's performance as the thoroughly odious, desperately seductive, textbook-case metrosexual Parker is that he brings so much reptilian fun that he unbalances the movie, almost fatally.|
|Movieline Stephanie Zacharek Fincher and his screenwriter, TV writer-god Aaron Sorkin, have made a seemingly modest picture that achieves something close to greatness the old-fashioned, slow-burning way: By telling a story with faces, dialogue and body language of all types, from awkward to swaggering.|
|NPR Bob Mondello Terrific entertainment - an unlikely thriller that makes business ethics, class distinctions and intellectual-property arguments sexy, that zips through two hours quicker than you can say "relationship status," and that'll likely fascinate pretty much anyone not named Zuckerberg.|
