The Social Network ★★★★★

I love The King's Speech, but damn, if this movie isn't something. The dialogue is stellar and so is the entire cast, Jesse Eisenberg and all. The characters, however far from reality, were handled very well. They weren't turned into character tropes and they were all very multi-faceted and given a gracious amount of screentime each. The direction is amazing as well -- the camera work! the music! The final rowing race comes to mind as an example of this. And as much as I have little clue of coding, college life, or business, this movie does a fine job of making the whole plot and its details clear and approachable without losing its speed or sharpness. Such a well-done film.
