At last a movie that gets Steve Jobs bang to rights.

I’ve seen a lot of movies that have utterly failed to get what Steve Jobs was like as a boss and, indeed, a human being. This film, called, simply enough, Steve Jobs, gets it nailed, though.

Set backstage at three product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint a portrait of the genius-stroke-nutter at its center.

Steve Jobs is directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin, working from Walter Isaacson’s warts and all biography of the Apple founder.

Michael Fassbender plays Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, with Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley.

Good job, Danny; his best film since scifi horror flick Sunshine.
