This mas­ter­ful, con­tentious and grip­ping biopic of Face­book web ty­coon Mark Zucker­berg ( ex­pertly por­trayed by Jesse Eisen­berg) down­loads us deep in­side the con­trol- alt- delete mind of its sub­ject. You can hit the es­cape key all you want. You won’t be able to get away. Ac­claimed screen­writer Aaron Sorkin ( TV’s The West Wing) clev­erly splits the Zucker­berg story into du­elling be­fore- and- af­ter moral­ity tales. In­ter- cut with a me­te­oric rise to in­ter­net bil­lion­aire­dom is a se­ries of law­suits sug­gest­ing Zucker­berg swiped his big idea from smaller minds. A provoca­tive com­men­tary on the ever- widen­ing gap be­tween the online world and the real world.
