‘Steve Jobs’

SJB_Tsr1Sht5_RGB_0818_1-780x1235It may veer from the truth and nothing but the truth in the telling of a few key years in the life of Steve Jobs, but Danny Boyle’s biopic, Steve Jobs, is an electric, quick-fire, multi-layered drama written by Aaron Sirkin (The Social Network, Moneyball).

Overcoming the ‘controversy’ of looking nothing like Jobs, Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave, Shame) is magnificently self-aggrandising in the title role – a modulated performance of ego, self-confidence and God-like arrogance… (And to think the portrayal has been toned down from the real thing). And whilst Jobs is “the conductor to his orchestra” (maestro would have been more self-appealing), the bit players in this unfolding drama are unanimously excellent, with Kate Winslet receiving her seventh Oscar nomination.
