Named after the co-founder of Apple Computers, the biopic Steve Jobs is the story, in three parts, of an unlikable uncaring “visionary” who attempts to rebuild both his company and the relationship with his daughter. A rather ordinary and uneventful drama, the film succeeds in illustrating the complexity of Jobs’ flawed character, but does little to reveal anything about him that was not already known (Klaus Ming January 2016).
