And so the 59th BFI London Film Festival draws to a close for another year. Tonight sees the final big red carpet gala screening with Steve Jobs, but has LFF saved the best for last?
As the summer draws to a close and autumn fast approaches it’s time to say farewell to the big blockbusters and begin to prepare ourselves for the inevitable slide into awards season.
August to October is always a strange time in cinema as distributors move away from the big tent-pole movies into the more dramatic, kudos-likely fare. But, as always, there are plenty of films that are worth getting excited about.
Here’s our first look at Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs.
The film is directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin (who’s quite good at writing about tech geniuses). The cast also includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels.
Steve Jobs is released in the UK in November – which I think makes it an obvious contender for this year’s London Film Festival.
