Pirates of Silicon Valley

[no poster image specified]

1999 (Martyn Burke) PG, 95 minutes

Anthony Michael Hall, Noah Wyle, Joey Slotnick

What begins as an experiment in neo-hippie low-level capitalism becomes a tooth-and-nail battle for control of the biggest business boom of the last quarter of the 20th century -- the personal computer revolution -- in Pirates of Silicon Valley. Noah Wyle stars as Steve Jobs and Joey Slotnick plays Steve Wozniak, a pair of computer enthusiasts who meet while working at Hewlett-Packard in the early '70s. Together they hatch a goofy scheme to market a small computer for the home or small office, and found a company to manufacture and sell their brainchild, which they name Apple Computers.
