Movie review – “The Social Network” (2010) *****

I’ve said most of what I need to say about this film in my review of the script; I’d just like to tip the hat to a uniformly excellent cast, best of which was Andrew Garfield as a very likeable Eduardo. But Jesse Eisenberg is good too, as is Justin Timberlake and the guy who plays the twins – I had to have that point out of to me afterwards. David Fincher’s direction is occasionally salacious (the scene with the Sanford girl becomes all about her underpants) but he does a better job of getting through Sorkin land than Mike Nichols did in Charlie Wilson’s War.
