"The one thing that stuck with me was how much of an impression he made on these people [he worked with]. Obviously when he was alive, but since he passed away, you could see that he was still very much present in their lives. Even if the relationships were difficult, there was a sadness and a love there for him that I felt was pretty clear, saidMichael Fassbender during his press conference after the N.Y. premiere of Danny Boyle's latest film. This story of Steve Jobs, co-founder, president and CEO of Apple Inc. has nothing in common with a typical biopic. Along with Aaron Sorkin, who wrote the screenplay, Boyle portrays three key moments in Jobs's career: 1984 and his initial success at Apple (the Macintosh), 1988, when the world learned of the NeXT computer, and 1998 when Jobs returns to his former company to later introduce the iMac. Boyle never shows his protagonist on stage; he does not want to see him in the limelight nor does he want to talk about the icon. He wants to examine the man. The camera follows narrow corridors behind-the-scenes and is there during heated conversations between Jobs and his assistant, co-workers and daughter, Lisa. Steve Jobs is"Birdman" for the tech sector, appositely points out IndieWire.
Danny Boyle is a British film and theater director, writer for the screen and producer. Considered one of the most maverick artists of his generation, he makes films in varying genres and styles.
