Steve Jobs movie gets Woz seal of approval

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has heaped praise upon the Steve Jobs biopic after seeing a rough cut of the film.

The Aaron Sorkin-penned, Danny Boyle-directed movie is set for an October 9 release, and Woz reckons the creators have nailed it.

Wozniak, who is played by Seth Rogen alongside Michael Fassbender’s Jobs told Deadline (via CNET): “I saw a rough cut and I felt like I was actually watching Steve Jobs and the others, not actors playing them, I give full credit to Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin for getting it so right,” he said.

The man behind the Apple I computer said he was impressed with Rogen’s ‘dead on’ portrayal, singled out Kate Winslet (who plays Apple marketing bod and Jobs confidant Joanna Hoffman) for special praise.

The Steve Jobs movie is one of a few to hit screens in the years following the Apple visionary’s passing in 2011.

Jobs, staring Ashton Kutcher struggled to garner critical acclaim, while the new documentary “Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine” portrays Jobs in a far less positive light.
