Steve Jobs. A name so simple, yet represents a brilliant mind. A man light years ahead of the world in technology, the co-found of Apple, a brand we recognize as more than just a fruit. “Creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing” said Walter Isaacson, Job’s official biographer, shortly after Job’s death.
A loner, a dropout, a visionary, a genius; these are just a few of the words use to describe Steve Jobs over his lifetime.
The path to greatness never comes easy. Film Director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, Michael Fassbender is STEVE JOBS.
STEVE JOBS will be released in theaters on October 9, 2015. I don’t always run to see a movie when it first comes out, but I have been truly inspired by Jobs, his drive, and his passion. I will be buying tickets for the release of Steve Jobs way in advance; I know Papa will want to see it ASAP, sounds like a date night to me.
Set backstage in the minutes before three iconic product launches spanning Jobs’ career—beginning with the Macintosh in 1984, and ending with the unveiling of the iMac in 1998—Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.
