The “The Social Network” released on 1 October has hit the US box office, pulling $23 million in its opening weekend. Although analysts expected $25 million of business, but still the numbers are high enough for it to top the box office.
The movie which marks the history of the biggest social networking site, facebook, has received positive reviews and appreciations from critics. Metacritic, a web critic, has lauded the movie by ranking it at 97 out of 100 which is impeccable. However the movie received an initial set of criticisms on the grounds that it eliminated and manipulated certain facts to create that dramatic effect. The media and top facebook personalities painted the picture of the movie to be inaccurate and unflattering.
The movie seems to be a fine amalgamation of facts with fiction to define entrepreneurship with social relations. Its a bit of a reflection of famed documentary director Werner Herzog’s “ecstatic truth.”
That is what happened in US. The movie which is to be released elsewhere is expected to do a good business and have a great response from all the facebook fans. So how enthusiastic are you? Tell us by giving stars to “The Social Network.”
