قصة نجاح فى نفس كل شخص فينا .. اكيد نفسى فى مشروع زى دة يجيب ملايين بالسهولة دة

طبعًا المشروع جاب معاه مشاكل كتير لمارك بس الفكرة الاساسية انه بقى ملياردير .. بس كدة :D

تقريبًا معملتش حاجة طول الفيلم غير انى بحسد فيه مش اكتر!

One of the best screenplays of the decade, Aaron Sorkin affirms his understanding of the mutual credit that modern technology and human psychology have in the information age.
I thought this made for an interesting read, because this is not the final script. There are some things that have been changed for the actual movie: some quotes, but most notably the name of Eduardo's girlfriend (named Jenny in this draft, but Christy in the movie).

I read the script because I'd liked watching the movie. Although, like is probably a strong word. The story is just utterly heartbreaking and the script definitely did that a million times over. This script however shows how importan

A screenplay is scaffolding. In The Social Network, I read the basic Geeks vs. The Establishment story with a reflection on what price a person has to pay in pursuit of the desire to belong. I have not seen the movie yet but, as I always am after reading a screenplay, look forward to seeing the director's interpretationg, their decoration around the structure set up by the screenplay.

I would agree with the reviews of the movie that I have read, the women in this script are almost nameless extras

Just a few links:

1) The script:

2) An article about why it's pretty sexist:

3) An article about the real Mark Zuckerberg (which exposes some of the untruths in the screenplay):

I read it after the film and now I understand the film better. It was fascinating especially how I felt that Mark Zuckerberg was not the main lead; Eduardo was more present but at the end it was Mark's dialogue that illuminated the script and showed its cleverness and wit. This is an outstanding film for its script fundamentally and secondly for the great acting and directing.

Really enjoyed this book... I watched the movie before hand, which was impressive also. The book was way better.

I thought it was interesting and amazing but I sure didn't like the guy who made it happen.

Mais interessante que o filme, com trechos que ficaram de fora ou foram alterados na versão final.

Really good. All I can say. It's like watching the movie, just that in a paper.
