Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen

Working from Walter Isaacson’s biography, writer Aaron Sorkin and director Danny Boyle join forces to create this dynamically character driven portrait of Steve Jobs, the brilliant man at the epicenter of the digital revolution. The film weaves the threads of Jobs’s life into extended backstage scenes of three iconic product launches: the first Macintosh computer, the NeXT work station, and the iMac. The result is a dazzlingly executed cross-hatched portrait of a complex and contradictory man set against the changing fortunes and circumstances of the home-computer industry and the ascendancy of branding, of products, and of oneself. “It is a formally audacious, intellectually energized entertainment, a powerful challenge to the lazy conventions of Hollywood storytelling and a feast for connoisseurs of contemporary screen acting.” (NY Times)
