According to ustoday.com, in the movie “Steve Jobs,” Michael Fassbender plays the role of an unsympathetic, ruthless monster. It can be said to be a version of “A Christmas Carol” from writer Aaron Sorkin with Jobs being portrayed as Scrooge. His conscience makes him a visit just before he was to step up on a stage to launch a new product and it happened on three such occasions.
The other characters that are found in the movie are Andy Hersfeld, an engineer, with whose help the first Macintosh computer was created, Steve Wozniak co-founder of Apple, John Scully, the person who fired Steve from Apple and Lisa, the girl whom Steve initially refuted to be his daughter.
