The Social Network

From director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin comes The Social Network, a film that proves you don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies. Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history, and the founder of Facebook. For this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. The film comes down to a mesmerizing portrait of a man who in any other age would perhaps be deemed nuts or useless, but in the Internet age has this mental agility to transform an idea into an empire.

As the movie makes abundantly clear, the facts behind its founding are in dispute but, without a doubt, Zuckerberg did create Facebook. Yet far from celebrating this feat, the movie examines how a man who cares little about money became the world's youngest billionaire yet lost his one true friend.

The story thus becomes a tale of power, fame, betrayal, revenge and responsibility.

Offer too special pre-wedding photograph packages to the client.
This is also certainly true when it comes to architectural design and technology.
Designed with a vision to create a convenient option to the
traditional schoolroom scheme the NYIP HA a list of course
to choose from and do from home. Wedding photography: Wedding
photography is an activity, which is related to wedding.
I loved the photos which showed rooms designed with
a monochromatic theme--everything blue, everything mauve, etc.
It can be fun if your photos will be more than just "good" pictures.
