Go see David Fincher's THE SOCIAL NETWORK - you'll never look at FACEBOOK the same way - Janice Roosevelt, Keller Williams PA & DE

By

In  a few words, go see THE SOCIAL NETWORK, just go see it!

Ok. My  son Henry Roosevelt  is on screen for the first time (if you don't blink and know he will be in the rowing scene saying "they're fast"  and in the scene with the Winklevoss twins eating a hamburger, and he is listed I the credits at the end as "Henry" right above Armie Hammer) .

 BUT, truly this is an amazing David Fincher movie with sparkling screenplay by Aaron Sorkin and  the story is one to ponder.

Mark Zuckerberg's founding of Facebook  as presented,  is a multi-billion dollar tragedy. Nerdy college genius gets dumped by girl and gets revenge creating  what most Active Rainers do daily - FACEBOOK.  

In the process to proving himself "worthy,'" Zuckerberg  dumps friends and callously hurts others, as he warp-speeds his way not only to heights of materialistic glory (which concerns him little) but to stand head to toe with the likes of Einstein or who knows else.

As so many of the glowing  reviews note, as well as Facebook  founders, the Facebook revolution is one that no one  truly understands. It will make you think twice about how you use social media.

P.S. What kind of a mother would I be if I didn't plug my own son's talents (thank you GWU and crew) and he has many. Check out and support the makig of his movie PiNCH - His penname is Charlie Flippet so the other shorts he's done are on Youtube wtih that name. Henry works in NYC in film on both sides of the camera

Jane, let me know what you think. I am indeed. He's thinking of moving out to LA after visiting for the screening a few weeks ago

The movie looks great.  How exciting for your son.  Is this his first acting gig?  I have a cousin in LA that teaches acting, if Henry needs some contacts

Kaye, that would be wonderful. He's done a bit, but his passion is in the "telling of the story," so he's done behind the camera stuff. Living in NYC right now.

Zuckerberg contests most of this movie as inaccurate and fictionalized. I however am a Facebook junkie, mostly using it to promote my business and other interests.

Walter: what is fascinating about Sorkin's screen treatment, based loosely on Ben Mezerich's The Accidental Billionaire is that he is portraying several different perspectives based on his research. There were TWO lawsuits roughly arund the same time  - one from the twins who won 65 million because they claimed Zuckerberg not only stole their idea, but led them on -acting as if he were workingon it. The second was his best friend, who provdied the VC ($19,000) for start up and then was worked out of the way contractually and emotionally as the company grew - much  to the credit of Justin Timberlake's character.

I saw your son.  You are right.  I only realized after it passed.  It was the boat scene.  I couldn't remember the other one.
