Steve Jobs

After one documentary and another biopic (in which he suffered the indignity of being played by Ashton Kutcher), Apple founder Steve Jobs ends up with a suitably high-class movie version of his life. Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) directs it, and Aaron Sorkin ("The West Wing," The Social Network) writes it. The unusual narrative structure revolves around three crucial product launches spread across Jobs' tumultuous tenure at Apple. It's a behind-the-scenes drama involving lots and lots of talking. But star Michael Fassbender is mesmerizing (as always), and the supporting cast (Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels) is impressive. 122 minutes R.
