Us Rating: *** 1/2

This thought-provoking, buzzed-about hit -- up for six Golden Globes -- follows the exploits of Harvard nerd Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg), who created Facebook in 2003. He eventually achieves immortality, despite lawsuits brought by classmates. Directed by David Fincher (Fight Club), the drama zips along with help from Aaron Sorkin's caffeinated dialogue. Bonus: 93 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage! (Sony Pictures, $29)
