Steve Jobs

Can a great man be a good man?


Steve Jobs
Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter. Despite the good reviews and talent both behind and in front of the camera, this film had a poor reception at the US box office, which was put down to it being the third Jobs biopic in recent times.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconSmartly (and thankfully) avoiding the usual biopic blueprint of moving through the ages, and instead focusing on just three pivotal moments in the protagonist's life, Steve Jobs tells its tale with brilliant efficiency, all with the outstanding dialogue being a delicious layer of frosting on this tasty offering.
