Script review - "Jobs" by Aaron Sorkin
Sorkin shows he's still got it in spades with a bravura take on the life of Steve Jobs. It's heavily theatrical, being three key product launches in the life of Jobs, with heavy focus on his poor relationships with people, including his own family. The draft I read was very very long but easily editable - a lot of discussion about the press could be removed especially, and there were many repetitive beats. It was enjoyable - Sorkin does intense IT moguls very well, and he likes Jobs more than Mark Zuckerberg.
