Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution, to paint a portrait of the man at its epicenter. The story unfolds backstage at three iconic product launches, ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac.
His passion and ingenuity have been the driving force behind the digital age. However his drive to revolutionize technology was sacrificial. Ultimately it affected his family life and possibly his health. In this revealing film we explore the trials and triumphs of a modern day genius, the late CEO of Apple inc. Steven Paul Jobs.Written by
John Sculley is seen in the business lounge of Cathay Pacific talking on the telephone in 1988, with the old logo and font very carefully added to the background wall and jet bridge. However, in a distance shot seconds later, a Cathay plane with the current 'brushwing' tail logo adopted in 1994 can be seen. See more »

Fassbender is magnificent in the title role, and the decision to advance the plot through a series of keynote addresses, which is truly what Jobs is best known for, was brilliant.
The movie is a bit thin, and overly dramatic, but it isn't meant to be a historical documentary, and overall the quick pace and liberties taken with historical events allow it to present the story, which is true if not in factual basis, is true in spirit. The story entertains by virtue of packing its highlights within the neat bookends of a bookmark address.
