Steve Jobs movie quotes bring the true story of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs to theaters for another feature length film. The biographical drama, based on the book of the same name by Walter Isaacson, was adapted into a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin. Directed by Danny Boyle, Steve Jobs opened in theaters on October 9, 2015.

In Steve Jobs, a behind-the-scenes look into the professional career and personal life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender) is featured. Starting with the early days when Jobs and co-founder Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen) launched the company, moving towards when Jobs was removed from the company by Apple CEO John Sculley (Jeff Daniels) through 1998 when the team unveiled the iMac, viewers get a look inside how Jobs and Wozniak took the project from a garage to one of the most powerful companies in the world.

But the film doesn't stick to just Apple dealings. It also shows a personal side of Steve Jobs, including his relationship with first child Lisa Brennan-Jobs (Perla Haney-Jardine, Ripley Sobo, and Makenzie Moss) and Lisa's mother, Chrisann Brennan (Katherine Waterston), as well as how trusted friend and coworker Joanna Hoffman (Kate Winslet) supported Jobs personally and professionally.

Steve Jobs opened in theaters alongside other great fall 2015 films such as The Martian, The Walk, The Intern and Hotel Transylvania 2.
