The film, directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin, stars Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet and Seth Rogen. It follows a fictionalized version of Jobs through three product launches.

Steve Jobs” is an invigorating story told in three acts of crisis, says NPR film critic Bob Mondello.

“The film’s tension comes partly from a raft of terrific performances everyone’s good, and Michael Fassbender’s stellar — and partly from juxtaposing Jobs’ public and private personas,” Mondello says on NPR All Things Considered.
