Based on the biography by Walter Isaacson and written by Academy Award-winner Aaron Sorkin, Steve Jobs details Steve Jobs’ life and relationships with 7 people including John Sculley, Lisa-Brennan Jobs, and Steve Wozniak throughout three major and historical product launches before ending in 1998 with the debut of the iMac.
Like most biopics, Sorkin’s script explores not only Jobs’ accomplishments, but also his struggles and his triumphs in an attempt to create a well-rounded portrait of the larger-than-life technology entrepreneur and business icon.
Steve Jobs is slated to open in theaters nationwide on October 9, 2015.
