Remember The Social Network, that intense movie about the young antisocial tech genius who made a little website called Facebook? The screenwriter of that movie, Aaron Sorkin, has made another movie about a young antisocial tech genius. Anyone ever heard of this guy called Steve Jobs?

We’ve seen this kind of movie before. The “troubled genius” story – think John Nash in A Beautiful Mind, Alan Turing in The Imitation Game – gets its latest incarnation in Edward Zwick’s new movie about chess champ Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire).
