Here's the story of Facebook. Of Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin, the two founders, of which one didn't share in the fortune as much as he might've expected.
Did you know the founder of Napster was involved too, if just a little? And that the main idea was basically stolen from a couple brothers from a richer tribe?
It's a great movie, and insightful, though definitely also angled for the big screen. There's plenty to read up on online regarding what was true here and what wasn't, though who knows exactly what's true there too.
Whichever bits here were it seems clear at least that Zuckerburg's no good dude, and that this movie actually did him a favor by making him seem more as an autistic kid than a psychopath, that Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake and the Winkelvosses (both played by Armie Hammer - if you wonder how they managed to make them seem so alike) all put on great performances, and that this - despite being a movie about a social media enterprise - which I personally wasn't expecting to be that exciting - turned out to be just that.
It really was a great movie. Maybe it deserves an even higher score, I just really don't like this particular social network. Though pleasantly surprised this story seems to further justify and somewhat enforce that too, and show the world - and me - why those sentiments really are relevant.
