Biopic de Danny Boyle

Dans les coulisses, quelques instants avant le lancement de trois produits emblématiques ayant ponctué la carrière de Steve Jobs, du Macintosh en 1984 à l’iMac en 1998, le film nous entraîne dans les rouages de la révolution numérique pour dresser un portrait intime de l’homme de génie qui y a tenu une place centrale.




Steve Jobs started life in San Francisco, California on February 24, 1955. Born to an unwed American mother and a Syrian father, Jobs was put up for adoption by his parents the week after his arrival in this world. Taken in by Paul and Clara Jobs of Mountain View, California, Jobs dislikes the term “adoptive parents” and considers Paul and Clara the only parents he ever had.

The story of Jobs as an adopted child is well published and known. It was also know that his bilogical father was Arab (who emigrated to the US in the 1950’s and worked as a political science professor). Now, the original nationality and name of Jobs’ bilogical father have also come out. See this excerpt on the AlwayOn Network.

The family’s saga is also a revealing case study in the  classic debate of nature vs. nurture. Jobs’ personality—his intelligence,  creativity, ambitiousness, charm, egomania, iconoclasm, and risk-taking—seems  drawn almost entirely from those of his birth parents, whom he never knew  growing up, rather than the adoptive parents who raised him. And it turns out  that Jobs, arguably the most fascinating figure in both Silicon Valley and  Hollywood, can make yet another claim to exceptionalism: he is the most  prominent living Arab-American. His biological father, Abdulfattah Jandali,  immigrated from his native Syria at the age of 21 in 1952.

Understandably, Jobs considers his adoptive father and mother as his ‘true’ parents. Yet, he managed to track down his biological mother and made peace with her. He also has a biological sister (the writer Mona Simpson) who he is on contact with.
