On a fall night in 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 as a small site among friends 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...
I am a budding tech entrepreneur and nothings gets me high like The Social Network. Can you people suggest any movies which are like the social network ? Need to get inspired. Don't copy pasta related...
It's 'The Facebook Movie' and it follows the story of Mark Zuckerberg inventing facebook, from a dorm room at Harvard in 2003 to the biggest social media website in the world, and it tells the story in a very interesting way, using flashbacks told as accounts of the events in the depositions of two concurrent court cases, as Zuckerberg was being sued both by the Winklevoss twins,played by Armie Hammer, students at Harvard at the same time as him, for intellectual property theft, as well as his former friend and partner Eduardo Saverin, played by Andrew Garfield, who I think was the best part of the entire film.
This film opens at Harvard University in 2003 where we are introduced to a brilliant computer geek named Mark Zuckerberg who is approached by a couple of snotty Harvard jocks to assist them in producing an internet dating sight for the college, an idea that Zuckerberg allegedly "stole" and turned into something that would eventually be known as Facebook.
