You would have to have been living under a rock for the last five years to not know what Facebook is. But what most people don’t know is the full story of its creation and the controversy surrounding its founder, the enigmatic Mark Zuckerberg. I knew tid bits of information from an article I had read in Rolling Stone, but I certainly wouldn’t have been able to guess just how deep the rabbit hole goes on this topic.
From the very first scene, this movie ignites your intrigue and propels forth, never losing its momentum. The dialogue is sharp and punchy but still believable as some of the characters in this film are quite literally geniuses, so naturally they would have an incredible grasp of language. The cuts between the live action and impending law suit scenes really help build your anticipation for the unfolding events, whereas usually so much talking could easily bore an audience. One of my favourite lines of dialogue comes at the end of the first scene and is delivered by Erica Albright (Mark Zuckerberg’s irate girlfriend):
“Mark, for the rest of your life you’re going to think that girls don’t like you because you’re a nerd. But I’m telling you right now that it’s because you’re an asshole!”
