Synopsis

In 2003, Harvard programming student Mark Zuckerberg begins work on a new idea which will end up revolutionising the world - the social media platform Facebook. Along the way, Zuckerberg faces a legal challenge from twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, as well as his former friend and collaborator Eduardo Saverin, each of whom believe they have been unlawfully mistreated by the awkward and often cruel prospective billionaire. Based on Ben Mezrich's book 'The Accidental Billionaires', this fast-paced drama is a fascinating insight into the origins of Facebook, the ethics behind its inception, and how social media impacts on all of our behaviour.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
