Steve Jobs

 

Rated R · 122 minutes · 2015

Biography, Drama
Aaron Sorkin's fictionalized screenplay about the tech guru behind Apple boils his life down into three product launches—for the Macintosh in 1984, the NeXT in 1988 (created after the board of Apple forced him out), and the iMac in 1998 (created after his triumphant return to the company). Throughout these episodes, Sorkin peddles the dualistic take on Jobs—part visionary, part ice-cold SOB—that's become conventional wisdom since his death in 2011, and focuses on his difficult relationships with programmer Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen), software designer Andy Hertzfeld (Michael Stuhlbarg), Apple CEO John Sculley (Jeff Daniels), and Lisa Brennan-Jobs, the biological daughter Jobs refused to acknowledge for years. As the title character, Michael Fassbender gets the SOB part down just fine, but there's little evidence of the personal magnetism that enabled Jobs to bend so many people to his will. Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) directed; with Kate Winslet and Katherine Waterston.
