The Social Network

500 Million and counting...

 

Mark Zuckerberg is a semi-genius when it comes to computers, not so much when it comes to women. When his girlfriend dumps him, Mark decides to get some revenge on her and all women by creating a website called Facemash which compares all the women at Harvard against each other. This little prank catches the eye of fellow students Cameron & Tyler Winklevoss and Divya Narendra who recruit Mark to create a web site that they came up with. It would be called Harvard Connect and be exclusive for the Harvard community and show peoples pictures, information, etc. Mark agrees but immediately turns around to his best friend Eduardo, asking for money for his own idea. For the next 6 weeks goes into hiding and when he emerges, he has created Facebook. Needless to say, when the Winklevoss’s and Narendra find out, they accuse him of stealing. Meanwhile Mark and his new creation take on a life of their own, and soon Mark gets into the crosshairs of famed Napster creator, Sean Parker who leads Mark into a whole new lifestyle. Soon Mark must decide between getting to the top or sticking with his friends.
