Last week I mentioned that my hubby and I went to watch The Social Network. We walked out of the theater completely satisfied! I thought the movie was very well made as long as you don't take it as a historically accurate piece of work. The movie obviously exaggerated some of the characters and the relationships these characters had with one another. Not only did they make Mark Zuckerberg seem like the ultimate villain, but they also made him the little puppet under Sean Parker's control.

Despite this, I still loved the movie. Every movie needs a good villain, and in a sense, Mark's character was the guy that was bad in a way, but deep inside you felt truly sorry for him. I'm also a huge fan of Aaron Sorkin, who wrote the screenplay for this. If anyone's a West Wing fanatic like me, you know his writing style. The characters always jibber jabber all the way through the show/movie with funny and witty dialogue. I won't give away the movie that much but the best part was actually the very first scene in the movie where Mark's girlfriend breaks up with him, which ultimately starts the whole Facebook phenomenon.
She says to him, ''You're going to be successful and rich. But you're going to go through life thinking that girls don't like you because you're a tech geek. I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that won't be true. It'll be because you're an a--hole." Just loved it!
I'm also a huge fan of Jesse Eisenberg now that I've watched Zombieland. One of the funniest movies I've seen in a while and can't wait until the sequel comes out!
Did anyone else watch The Social Network? What did you think???
This morning I seriously did not know what to wear but all I knew was I didn't want pants! I was determined to wear my new Anthro tights and the new Showpiece tee in navy. And this is what I came up with:
Showpiece Tee in Navy (Anthropologie)
Cardi - Nordstrom
Skirt - Circle the Globe (Anthropologie)
Tights - Anthropologie (not sure the name of this)
Shoes - Anticipation Heels (Anthropologie)
Scarf - New York City street vendor =)
Have a lovely weekend, gals!!!
