In a new featurette for “Steve Jobs,” the cast and creative team behind the biopic discuss their own interpretations of the film’s iconic subject. Stars Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet, along with director Danny Boyle and writer Aaron Sorkin, weigh in on their own thoughts of Steve Jobs’ genius and legacy.

The film follows Jobs behind the scenes at the launch of three different Apple product launches. The cast comments on how Steve Jobs changed the way we look at technology and how his own personal struggles affected his status as a major media mogul. They also discuss the difficulties of accurately capturing such a monumental figure in a film, with Sorkin saying, “The differences between characters and people is the same as the difference between a photograph and a painting. This movie is a painting.”
