The Social Network (PG-13)


Everybody will love David Fincher’s fast-paced drama about the meteoric rise of Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook. Jesse Eisenberg gives Zuckerberg an acid-tongued and fast-twitch cyberpunk attitude. And Justin Timberlake’s performance is awesome. Aaron Sorkin’s dazzling script toggles between law office depositions and flashback sequences that tell the whole story. Context and tone are everything in this pitch-perfect drama.
