Steve Jobs (2015)
After debuting to positive reviews, though considered a box office failure, Danny Boyle’s film, features a sharp script by Aaron Sorkin. The Michael Fassbender-starrer utilises an inventive three-act structure, delving behind-the-scenes in the fraught hours before three major launches for Apple products in 1984, 1988 and 1998. Sorkin’s script doesn’t spare the nastier side of Jobs’ personality when it comes to his work, but smartly finds redemption through his daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs. Played at different times by Makenzie Moss, Ripley Sobo and Perla Haney-Jardine, the film shows a glimpse of his strained relationship with Lisa, who Jobs’ repeatedly denied the paternity of for many years before they reconciled. Despite not living up to expectation, this is a story about a man who accepts that he’s shaped by his own estranged parents, as well as the struggle to accept his own child.
