The Social Network, 2010
Mark Zuckerberg might not have come off well in The Social Network, which stages the birth and development of Facebook, but it’s still a compelling story that captures the spirit of our age. Adapted from Ben Mezrich’s non-fiction The Accidental Billionaires, we see Zuckerberg go from tech geek to media mogul and Facebook transform from a misogynistic website designed to rate girls on campus to a global network connecting millions around the world. An accurate portrait of a tech-fuelled world, The Social Network is as much about the power of the internet and its capacity to bring together, as much as it is the narcissism that it breeds.
