(2013) (Ashton Kutcher, Josh Gad) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: A young man starts a computer company only to have to deal with its growing pains, including his relationship with those who helped him start it as well as clashing with a price conscious corporate board.
- In 1974, Steve Jobs (ASHTON KUTCHER) is a smart young man who's trying to figure out his place in life, and while he's dropped out of Reed College, he still drops in for classes, much to the admiration of his friend, Daniel Kottke (LUKAS HAAS). Two years later, Steve is working for Atari and he calls in his friend, Steve "Woz" Wozniak (JOSH GAD), to help him complete a game project. Seeing a prototype computer that Woz has created, Steve believes they can sell it. With the help of Daniel, Rod Holt (RON ELDARD), Bill Fernandez (VICTOR RASUK) and young Chris Espinoza (EDDIE HASSELL), they create a computer company they decide to call Apple.
Their invention draws the attention of tech investor Mike Markkula (DERMOT MULRONEY), all of which results in rapid growth as well as the creation of a board of directors a few years later. Its chairman, Arthur Rock (J.K. SIMMONS), becomes concerned with Steve's wild-sounding ideas and associated cost overruns. Accordingly, Steve agrees to have John Sculley (MATTHEW MODINE), who previously ran Pepsi, hired as Apple's new CEO. But with Steve's prickly personality and demand for innovation and perfection, it's only a matter of time before things come to head in terms of leadership at the company once it goes public.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- They might if they're fans of anyone in the cast or are interested in the early days of Steve Jobs.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
