New Steve Jobs biopic receives great reviews at the Telluride Film Festival
While the movie focuses on Jobs backstage at the introduction of the Mac, the introduction of the NeXT box and the introduction of the iMac, it also examines his relationships with Steve Wozniak (played by Seth Rogen), Jobs' hand picked Apple CEO choice John Sculley, and Mac team member Andy Hertzfeld. Others portrayed include Mac and NeXT team member Joanna Hoffmann (portrayed by Kate Winslet), and Jobs' daughter Lisa.
Critics are praising Fassbender's turn as Steve Jobs, and Sorkin's script is also receiving high marks. This is a film that has been through a lot as Sony ended up selling the rights to Universal, and a number of A-list stars who were offered the Steve Jobs role ended up turning it down. While the Ashton Kutcher vehicle "Jobs" failed artistically and financially, this version of the mythical story sounds like it might do better at the box office.
