Social Network, The

[cert 12A, 120 mins]

Harvard University, 2003. Zuckerberg develops the idea for Facebook with the financial
help of his friend Saverin, but as the site soars in popularity, the pair fall out over the
direction the company should take. Meanwhile, three other students claim that key ideas
behind Facebook were stolen from them. As the site becomes more and more successful,
Zuckerberg finds himself increasingly alone and learns that huge success can come at the
cost of true friendship. Based on true events, The Social Network charts the foundation of
Facebook, the relationship between its co-founders Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg)
and Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield), and the two court cases over the site’s origins
that followed.
