A member of the original Mac team said 'almost nothing' in the new Steve Jobs movie 'is like it really happened'
It's meant to paint a behind-the-scenes portrait of Jobs during some of the most important moments of his career.But Andy Hertzfeld, a member of the original Mac team that's portrayed in the film, says the way events play out in the movie aren't the way they happened in real life. Advertisement
Hertzfeld pointed out that it's more about capturing the essence of who Jobs was rather than relating the facts."The purpose of the film is to entertain, inspire, and move the audience, not to portray reality," he said. "It is cavalier about the facts but aspires to explore and expose the deeper truths behind Steve's unusual personality and behavior, and it often but not always succeeds at that."
The film, simply called "Steve Jobs" will officially hit theaters on Oct. 9. It stars Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, with Seth Rogen playing Jobs' longtime friend and Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak. Kate Winslet will play Joanna Hoffman, the fifth person to be hired on the Mac team, and Jeff Daniels is cast as John Sculley, the former CEO of Apple.
