The choice of the movie is yours!

Below please find a list of 3 recommended movies (+ links to the trailers) for you to choose from - the one that will get most of your votes will be the movie for me to watch .

·         The Social Network:
The Social Network Movie explores the moment at which Facebook was invented - through the warring perspectives of the super-smart young men who each claimed to be there at its inception. Social Network Movie moves from the halls of Harvard to the cubicles of Palo Alto to capture the heady early days of a culture-changing phenomenon in the making — and the way it both pulled a group of young revolutionaries together and then split them apart. In the midst of the chaos are Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg), the brilliant Harvard student who conceived a website; Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield), once Zuckerberg’s close friend, who provided the seed money for the fledgling company; Napster founder Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake) who brought Facebook to Silicon Valley’s venture capitalists; and the Winklevoss twins (Armie Hammer and Josh Pence), the Harvard classmates who asserted that Zuckerberg stole their idea and then sued him for ownership of it. Each has his own narrative, his own version of the Facebook story in this multi-level portrait of 21st Century success – both the youthful fantasy of it and its finite realities as well. 

·         The Next Three Days:
The Next Three Days centers on John (Russell Crowe) and Lara Brennan (Elizabeth Banks) and his undeniable quest for her freedom. After having an argument with her employer, Lara is arrested the day after her boss’s dead body is found in a parking lot.
