Jobs tells the story of Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, who was ousted from his own company by the board that turned against him. Ashton Kutcher gives an excellent portrayal of Jobs as the main character in the film with Dermot Mulroney giving fantastic support playing the character of Jobs' business partner Steve Wozniak.

The movie covers the period from when Jobs and Wozniak literally invented the concept of the personal computer up until Jobs is kicked out of the very successful company, called Apple, that he founded. Jobs deserves to be kicked out because he is arrogant and dictatorial and un-compromising. This is exactly why he should never have been kicked out of Apple as well.
Without the leadership of Jobs, Apple falls down, very hard and very fast. The bean-counters that tried to replace Jobs suddenly have to try to get him back. This movie is about the classic confrontation between creative innovators and conservative investors who have the money and power but don't know how to make something new.
Best part of story, including ending:
Ashton Kutcher captures the real-life Steve Jobs perfectly in his walk, his mannerisms and his attitude.
Best scene in story:
When Jobs says to Wozniak in a parking lot, "How do they know what a personal computer is, if they have never seen one?"
Opinion about the main character:
It is unfortunate that the movie only covers a portion of Steve Jobs' life, because the later years, before he died, and the other companies he formed such as Next and Pixar are just as interesting.
