122 minutes, U.S.A., 2015, Digital

This film was released on Friday 13th November 2015 and is no longer screening. 

Following his Oscar-winning screenplay for The Social Network (2010), which recounted Mark Zuckerberg’s founding of Facebook, Aaron Sorkin returns to the digital world with this study of Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc. The film has a three-act structure, each of which centres on backstage activity before the launch of a key product.

We first meet Jobs and recurring figures Joanna Hoffman(Kate Winslet), Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen) and John Sculley (Jeff Daniels) in 1984 before the launch of the Macintosh, before moving to 1988 and the launch of NeXT, and finally, in 1998, the launch of the iMac, sequences shot respectively on 16mm, 35mm, and digitally. Danny Boyle directs with a sure, restrained hand, allowing Sorkin’s exceptional script to take pride of place, well served by superb performances in one of the year’s best films.

Don’t forget we now schedule weekly.
