Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Oct 3rd at 4pm for The Social Network at the Regal Gallery Place . Look for Craig wearing a black baseball cap with an orange “P” in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
“The Social Network” explores the moment at which Facebook, the most revolutionary social phenomena of the new century, was invented — through the warring perspectives of the super-smart young men who each claimed to be there at its inception. The result is a drama rife with both creation and destruction; one that audaciously avoids a singular POV, but instead, by tracking dueling narratives, mirrors the clashing truths and constantly morphing social relationships that define our time. Drawn from multiple sources, the film captures the visceral thrill of the heady early days of a culture-changing phenomenon in the making — and the way it both pulled a group of young revolutionaries together and then split them apart. Directed by David Fincher. Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Brenda Song, Joseph Mazzello, Rooney Mara.
