The Clam­our Of Kate


Along­side daugh­ter Lisa, Joanna Hoff­man was the key char­ac­ter for Boyle: “This guy is a mon­ster made beau­ti­ful by these two women.” Hoff­man is Jobs’ con­science, his right arm, and his “work wife”, guilty of al­low­ing him to be­have so poorly, and Kate Winslet was on a mis­sion, send­ing Boyle a pho­to­graph of her­self in an un­stylish wig. “When [an ac­tor’s] got that fever, don’t get in their way — just clear a path for it,” says the di­rec­tor. “I re­alised what it was: as an ac­tress and an artist, she is mak­ing a tran­si­tion into mid­dle age. That role let her grow.”
