"Steve Jobs is dramatically concentrated, yet beautifully expansive; it's extremely sharp; it's wildly entertaining, and the actors just soar — you can feel their joy as they bit into the material." Boyle said, "I am honoured that our film has been selected as the centerpiece of this year's festival. And thrilled and terrified too, unlike the subject of our film, who would have taken the whole thing very much in his stride."
