This distance may be Sorkin and Boyle’s attempt to reflect Jobs’s mind within the narrative structure itself. The story makes very clear that Jobs is locked into each event, his mind zoned in on one objective: success.
The first shot is of an idyllic, modern home secluded in the Austrian countryside, which clearly means someone’s going to die. I don’t think there's ever been a film with an idyllic, secluded home that made me think, “This looks like a feel good story. No one could possibly die in this.”
