The Social Network

Even if this film isn't totally based on true events, The Social Network is a great tale of what it takes to create a powerful business.

When you have Aaron Sorkin as your screenwriter, you know the dialogue will be rhythmic and quick. The opening scene offers the skill at which these actors can deliver a Sorkin script.

Luckily things slow down just a tad for the rest of the film so that we can actually enjoy what's being said.

Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield do a fantastic job portraying the guys behind the creation of Facebook. Eisenberg's portrayal is one that you can't decide if you want to cheer for him or despise him.

Garfield is the perfect friend. I can't wait to see his version of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the upcoming superhero movie.

Justin Timberlake gives us the man behind Napster and you can pretty much place the blame on his shoulders for how Facebook exploded out West as well as the destruction of the friendship between Garfield and Eisenberg.

The Social Network could be a great tool to inspire people to create their own business. As long as they don't forget the friends who made it possible.
