Ashton Kutcher's role in 'jOBS' draws Sundance to a close

As it draws to a close, the Sundance Film Festival is set to finish on a high note. jOBS, the biopic of Apple founder Steve Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher is the final screening on the festival's busy schedule. And having arrived in Park City Utah, where the 10-day festival takes place, Ashton attended the film's world premiere on Friday.

The eagerly anticipated movie will show the world how the 34-year-old actor went about immortalising one of the 21st century's great visionaries. jOBS tells the story of how, in 1976,  Red College dropout Steve Jobs began a technical revolution from his parents' garage.


With his friend and technical expert Steve Wozniak, played by ER actor Josh Gad, the two began producing and shipping 200 units of the 'Apple 1' by hand. Over 30 years later their creation transformed the technical world with hundreds of millions of people using Apple products today.

In a performance described by the festival as "highly nuanced" Ashton captures the technology icon who passed away in 2011.


Those eagerly awaiting the cinematic release, however, will have to wait until April as its appearance at the festival is only for members of the film industry.

With his name stamped on the film, all eyes will be on leading man Ashton for personal as well as professional reasons. Iowa-born Ashton's arrival in Utah was his first public appearance since officially filing for divorce from Demi Moore in December, more than a year after their separation.

The Two And A Half Men star is now in a relationship with Mila Kunis, who starred alongside Natalie Portman in thriller Black Swan. So far, however, the actress has not been spotted at the festival to support boyfriend Ashton.
