This is a hard quick read movie review after doing some research on Mr. Jobs. I will say this film is well acted. Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet give great performances (maybe Oscar worthy). Not knowing much about Steve Jobs personal life was an interesting pull to the storyline. There’s lots of computer jargon that could go over your head. The storyline revolves around three of Jobs’ well known product launch unveilings. Unfortunately, the movie isn’t dated to more recent product developments (iphone, ipad etc…). I did find this man’s life to be interesting and worth learning more about. This film is depicted from a book by Walter Issacson (Jobs’ person biographer) yet Jobs’ wife/family do not give a seal of approval of this film and actually contacted a couple of actors and asked them to not accept the role. Since this is the 2nd film about Jobs’ in the last couple of years I’m sure that one day his family will finally approve a depiction/storyline that they want on the big screen.
