- Adam Chitwood
- The Social Network. “You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you’re going to go through life thinking that girls don’t like you because you’re a nerd.
- Steve Jobs. “It’s not binary. You can be decent and gifted at the same time.” Speaking of films that shouldn’t work, Sorkin took on the unenviable task of writing a Steve Jobs biopic and ended up crafting one of the best and most original biographical films ever made.
- Moneyball. “I know these guys. I know the way they think, and they will erase us. And everything we’ve done here, none of it’ll matter. Any other team wins the World Series, good for them.
- A Few Good Men. “I strenuously object? Is that how it works? Hm? ‘ Objection.’ ‘ Overruled.’ ‘ Oh, no, no, no. No, I strenuously object.’ ‘ Oh, well if you strenuously object then I should take some time to reconsider.’”
- A Few Good Men. I WANT THE TRUTH! How many people who were alive in 1992 don’t know that scene by heart? It’s interesting to go back to Aaron Sorkin’s early days (A Few Good Men was his first screenplay to be produced, adapted from his own play) and be reminded, oh yeah, this Aaron Sorkin is actually pretty good at pulp-y fiction.
- Charlie Wilson’s War (2007) Charlie Wilson’s War, directed by Mike Nichols, is the ironically feel-good story of a womanizing Democratic congressman played by Tom Hanks, who teams up with a born-again debutante played by Julia Roberts, and an irascible CIA agent played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, to get the US government to help fund their proxy war against the Soviets in Afghanistan by arming the mujahideen.
- Malice (1993) My first thought upon taking this assignment after I went to check IMDB was, “Oh crap, do I have to go rewatch Malice now?” It’s debatable how much Malice, co-written by Sorkin and the great Scott Frank from a story by Sorkin and Jonas McCord, counts as an “Aaron Sorkin movie,” but having rewatched it, I can confirm that it is absolutely f*cking bonkers and certainly worth a rewatch.
- The Social Network (2010) I wrote a whole separate retrospective on this one a few weeks back if you want to read that. Anyway, I know most people would probably have The Social Network ranked a lot higher on this list, because, admittedly, it is a brilliantly crafted and acted David Fincher film with memorable lines and an unforgettable score.

- Julia Bingham, (m. 1996; div. 2005)
- Syracuse University
- "The Social Network" (2010) Sorkin’s filmic output can’t compare to his work on television. But “The Social Network” is Sorkin’s crowning achievement.
- “The American President” (1995) Pure joy. “The American President” is not based on a true story. It’s not adapting an acclaimed New York Times best-seller.
- “Moneyball” (2011) Sorkin is best when adapting events that (on the page) don’t appear inherently cinematic. “Moneyball” is a film about number-crunching statisticians obsessed with a calculable solution to sport.
- “Charlie Wilson’s War” (2007) This one is just fun. Re-watching director Mike Nichols’ biopic of the Texas congressmen (Tom Hanks), it’s clear Sorkin’s work plays better if it's, well, playful.
