I took that photo on Sunday afternoon as I was getting ready to meet Judy at the movie theater. We had the time change the previous night, and so although the movie was starting at 3:00pm, it was already getting late in the afternoon for me. By the time we left the theater, it was pitch dark, and it was only a little after 5:00pm!
What movie did we see? We saw Steve Jobs, a rather controversial movie about the co-founder of Apple, who died in 2011. I am an Apple fan, typing this post on my second MacBook Air (I got a new version after my first one turned three, with a hard drive twice the size of my first). And I own an iPhone 6, which has turned into my main camera, since it takes such great pictures. If you click on the link above, you'll go to a Hollywood Reporter article about some of the controversy. When I returned home from the theater, I immediately got on the internet to see how much of the movie is true to life.
First of all, the movie is mostly about Jobs' relationship to his first daughter, Lisa, who was born out of wedlock. He initially denied paternity. The movie makes it seem like he's a really unpleasant person in many ways that were highlighted with little to no redeeming qualities. He had a sister, Mona Simpson, who wrote a very moving eulogy about her brother who sounds nothing like the person portrayed in the movie. I read more than one piece that called the movie a "character assassination." His wife (not even mentioned in the movie) tried everything she could to keep it from being made, because she feared something like this would happen.
If you go, remember that. He was a great man who died before his time, in my opinion. And I'll get the biography of Jobs that was written by Walter Isaacson. It looks really tempting, and I might even spring for the $13 Kindle version and bury myself in it while I'm traveling tomorrow.
