THE BIRTH OF A PHENOMENON — A REVIEW

From the first few minutes of this fantastic film, I could not stop watching. Not only because I am one of those people now obsessed with the Facebook network, but because it seemed too incredible for words that something this great could be created almost by accident.

Jesse Eisenberg’s portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg and Justin Timberlake’s Sean Parker were spot on.

This film is described as the stunning tale of “a new breed of cultural insurgent: a punk genius who sparked a revolution and changed the face of human interaction for a generation, and perhaps forever.”

Unfolding in flashbacks and fast-forwards, this tale chronicles the creation of the Facebook phenomenon, while at the same time depicting the legal battles over ownership.

At the end of the day, despite these difficulties and obstacles, the last ones standing (Zuckerberg, et. al.) are “accidental billionaires,” with Zuckerberg dubbed the youngest billionaire in the world.

If I could give more than five stars for The Social Network (Two-Disc Collector’s Edition), I would. But five stars it is.
