(US, 2015) Director: Danny Boyle. Screenplay by Aaron Sorkin. Cast: Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels.

One of our favorite things at Cinestudio is to take a second look at an excellent movie that has been (mistakenly) marketed to a mass audience, and give our audience a chance to appreciate the art film it was meant to be. Take Steve Jobs: an intelligent, ambivalent portrait of the visionary who transformed the way we communicate, listen to music, take pictures, and even make movies.
Boyle and Sorkin’s film portrays three moments in Jobs’ life: his introduction of the first Macintosh personal computer in 1984; after being canned from Apple, his 1989 presentation of a ‘black cube’ educational computer; and his return to Apple, as he rolls out the iMac in 1998. Michael Fassbender (Frank, 12 Years a Slave) soars as the man who belonged equally to the counterculture, the marketplace, and the future. 121 min.

“an intellectually energized entertainment, a powerful challenge to the lazy conventions of Hollywood storytelling and a feast for connoisseurs of screen acting.” A. O. Scott, New York Times.
