Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) has been dumped by his girlfriend, so, in revenge, he writes a savage blog about her and hacks into all the local college computers to amass a scurrilous website to taunt her and her friends. The site proves incredibly popular, so Zuckerberg develops plans for a social network site called The Facebook, which becomes a near-overnight success. As The Facebook grows, however, Zuckerberg drifts away from his best friend and business partner while infuriating a pair of jocks who claim he has stolen their idea...
A rich, understated character drama that gleefully exposes the petty playground politics at the centre of one of the internet-era's most bitter court cases.
