Telling moments from the Facebook movie
By now, you've all not only heard about the Facebook movie -- now formally titled "The Social Network" -- you may also have heard that it's supposed to be downright fantastic.
At least, that's what they're saying about the script now making the rounds. But the script -- written by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, Sports Night) is also dead-on when it comes to raising the Big Issues facing the omnipresent social networking site.
Sorkin's script is based on Ben Mezrich's The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal, which is due for release next week. (And with a title like that, how could it not be a hit?) While most reviewers have shied away from quoting much of Sorkin's script, Forbes.com had no such qualms, and even gave us one tasty morsel of a scene to examine.
