Goofs

During the Mac launch in 1984, John Sculley tells Steve Jobs that Apple's board of directors sent him as "the Steve whisperer" to calm Jobs down. The slang term "whisperer," used to refer to someone with an affinity for communicating with something stubborn, did not enter popular usage until the release of the novel "The Horse Whisperer" in 1995, and the subsequent film adaptation which was released in 1998.

A Portrait
1 December 2015 | by AliceofXSee all my reviews

I remember when back in 2013 the Jobs movie came out. Everything about the film's trailer was "do not see". Still to this day the moment when Kutcher says "we're making Apple cool again" makes me laugh. Right from the start this film looked like they were going to do it right and I was anxiously waiting for it. And even though Steve Jobs wasn't everything I thought it would be it is still a quality drama.

Yet I can also see why it was not so commercially successful. It's weird format of taking place before three computer unveilings and the film essentially consisting of conversations with limited action between them. It is by no means a biography of the man's entire life but it does paint a portrait which, like any picture, only reveals some aspects of the person.

The film has a great cast who give solid performances. Michael Fassbender creates a character whose tyrannical and devilish behaviour you want to keep watching while longing for a glimpse of the human side.

Overall Steve Jobs is a very watchable and engaging film, provided you are already into end of the year Oscar bait drama films.
