Yesterday, we shared the first-ever video clip from the upcoming movie “jOBS.” The movie is set to hit the big-screen later this year, and will focus on the earlier life of Steve Jobs.
Having presumably seen the movie clip featuring Kutcher and Gad for himself, though, a person who is claiming to be the real ‘Steve Wozniak’ has posted a note on Gawker, citing that the movie scene is “very wrong,” and perhaps totally inaccurate in relation to what actually happened.
The user named ‘Steve Wozniak’ writes:
Not close…we never had such interaction and roles…I’m not even sure what it’s getting at…personalities are very wrong although mine is closer…don’t forget that my purpose was inspired by the values of the Homebrew Computer Club along with ideas of the value of such machines and Steve J. wasn’t around and didn’t attend the club so he was the one learning about such social impact of the future.
Of course, “jOBS” is just an independent movie — and as such, there would have to be at least some expectation that the story (or real events) of what actually happened at the time, may be interpreted incorrectly by those responsible for the movie’s production. It just comes with the job description, especially if you’re working without the involvement of the real people (who were there at the time).
That said, it is perhaps disappointing to see, what is considered the first-ever clip from the upcoming movie, described by someone who presumably was there … as “very wrong.” Here’s hoping the rest of the movie doesn’t follow suit.
