The life-story of Apple co-founder and visionary Steve Jobs returns to the silver screen this weekend, with Danny Boyle’s new eponymous biopic set for release on Friday 13 November. Steve Jobs stars Michael Fassbender as the notorious Apple innovator, alongside Kate Winslet as his marketing guru, and the comic talents of Seth Rogan as Apple's co-creator.
Jobs is in safe hands under the pen of Aaron Sorkin, whose previous films The Social Network and Moneyball managed to find drama in equally unlikely places. The film's flaw, however, comes in the form of Sorkin's decision to focus in on a more personal aspect, Job's relationship with his daughter. As the final scenes drive this relationship to the fore, the film veers into sentimental – and slightly melodramatic – territory. Sorkin wants to show us that Jobs is human, but the punchy dialogue and honed narrative has already more than achieved this goal.
