This movie just… resonated well. The acting was done well, the story was interesting, the music (Done by none other than Nine Inch Nails own Trent Reznor) set the tone perfectly, and it was just a really good movie overall.
The final scene where Zuckerburg (played by Jesse Eisenberg) refreshes the page of his former girlfriend over and over, while captions show up explaining what happened to all the people suing Zuckerburg, was perfect.
"Zuckerburg is the youngest billionaire in the world."
500 million friends, and he still ends up alone in the end.
No better way to end a movie than with that.
(As a side note, I’ve now finished watching all of the Best Picture nominees for the 2010 Academy Awards. I suppose I’ll start on 2009 soon enough.)
