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.
Steve Jobs is directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle and written by Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin, working from Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple founder. The producers are Mark Gordon, Guymon Casady of Film 360, Scott Rudin and Academy Award winner Christian Colson.
Michael Fassbender plays Steve Jobs, the pioneering founder of Apple, with Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. The film also stars Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.
The Steve Jobs film did poorly in theaters but has been reviewed well. Both Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet have received Oscar nominations for their roles in Steve Jobs. The movie has already won two Golden Globes for 'Best Screenplay - Motion Picture' (by Aaron Sorkin) and 'Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture' (Kate Winslet).
The Blu-ray costs $19.99 on Amazon and the DVD costs $14.99.
