First Friday Film Series presents: Steve Jobs (2015) [R] 2 hr 2 min

Friday Apr 7, 2017, 7 p.m.

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.

Starring Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, and Seth Rogan (with an awesome turn by Jeff Daniels) Steve Jobs is based on the terrific biography by Walter Isaacson of the same name. It’s directed by Danny Boyle, but perhaps more influential is the screenwriter: Aaron Sorkin. Typically, the dialog crackles and hums as people talk over each other, deliver rapid fire pronouncements, and bring large themes into small moments.

Most of us are aware of Jobs’ work with Apple. As he mentions in the film, he didn’t really invent or build anything, but likens himself to a conductor leading an orchestra. Jobs is one of the most fascinating figures of our time, and this film illustrates some of what makes him tick. The Macintosh, OSX, and iPhone are three of Jobs’ culture changing products. While much has been revealed about the tech side of Apple, Steve Jobs also illuminates his personal side, particularly his strained relationship with daughter Lisa.

Whether you’ve never touched a computer or ask people to break your Mac out of your cold, dead, hands, Steve Jobs is a moving and illuminating portrait of a giant in our modern internet-connected world. We’re going to view it Friday April 7, at 7 pm at the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Library. Yes, it’s a little earlier, but it’s still FREE FREE FREE.
