Written by Aaron Sorkin, directed by Danny Boyle, starring Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet (with expert support from Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Michael Stuhlbarg and Katherine Waterston), “Steve Jobs” is a smart, hugely entertaining film that all but bristles with crackling creative energy. What it is not is a standard biopic.
