The New York Film Festival Selects the Movie "Steve Jobs" as this Year's Centerpiece
The Film Society of Lincoln Center was pleased to announce earlier today that the movie "Steve Jobs," written by Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, Charlie Wilson's War) and directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours), has been selected as the Centerpiece for the 53rd New York Film Festival. The film will screen for audiences on October 3. Boyle and Sorkin joined forces to create this film about the brilliant man at the epicenter of the digital revolution, working from Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography.
Danny Boyle stated he was honored that the film Steve Jobs had been selected as the Centrepiece of this year's festival, "And thrilled and terrified too, unlike the subject of our film, who would have taken the whole thing very much in his stride. Steve Jobs was a thoroughly contradictory and complex character who forged our digital age. He's the kind of brilliant, flawed character that Shakespeare would have relished writing about, and storytellers of all kinds will be fashioning and re-fashioning the mythology of the digital revolution for generations to come. I hope that festival goers enjoy our take."
Last year's centerpiece film was "Inherent Vice," which didn't fare well with the public. Will the movie "Steve Jobs" do any better this year? Only time will tell as many Apple Fans weren't all that crazy about Walter Isaacson's biography. You could read more about this story here.
