One of Aaron Sorkin’s Finest

Steve jobs is a very compelling and well made drama with a fantastic script starring Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet. The film takes place over 14 years and focuses on the launches of 3 computers. Just about the only thing to worry about in this film is language. Language : 4/5 About 20 F-Words, lots of other mild profanities. Messages : 3/5 Messages about the importance of taking parenting seriously and the strive for perfection
