The Social Network – Movie

Last night I was the happy recipient of an invitation to preview The Social Network. I won’t spoil it for you, but I can say it was much better than I had expected.

Here’s a quick overview of characters:

  • Erica Albright – inspirational muse
  • The Winklevie – bad project managers
  • Eduardo Saverin – clueless try-harder guy
  • Sean Parker – über sleazy guy
  • Mark Zuckerberg – “you’re not an asshole Mark, you just want to be”

Hands down, Mark Z is not being framed as the bad guy everyone sorta feared.  If anything, the evil doer would seem to be Sean Parker.  That can’t be a good look for him, but at least he was played by Justin Timberlake, so that aught to take some sting out of it. 🙂

While I certainly enjoyed the film, it should be noted that it’s a fictional account based on factual events. Probably why including, “85% emotions and 15% perjury,” made for such a good line.

Thank you to @khartline @Mashable
