Brooklyn Park screenwriter Michael Starrbury ("The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete") can't wait to see Aaron Sorkin's writing come to life in "Steve Jobs," starring Michael Fassbender as the pioneering founder of Apple. It opens Oct. 9.

"We've kind of put [Jobs] on a pedestal as a culture. It'll be nice to see the humble beginnings and the downfall. I think Sorkin is really great at that thing. The guy's a master of writing conflict within a scene. He knows how to make characters play against each other. He's incredible at pacing a scene. It's things like that that let me sit through 'The Social Network' a thousand times."
