Starring: Jesse Eisenbeger, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake

Directed by: David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club and Zodiac)

Story: 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 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 entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. (Sony Pictures)

Rated: PG-13

Bottom Line: To not see this movie is to not see the obvious front runner for Best Picture come Academy Award time. It’s a tightly-wound drama that fires so well on all pistons (directing, writing, acting, cinematography, music, etc) that there’s no way this fascinating movie about privacy, ownership, insecurity, competition and social hierarchy won’t get a ton of Oscar nominations. I'll give it two Facebook 'like' thumbs up!
