jOBS To Close Sundance 2013

jOBS To Close Sundance 2013
jOBS, the first movie about the life of Steve Jobs since his untimely death last year, is to debut at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival next month.

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, jOBS sets out to chronicle a 30-year period in the former Apple CEO's life, from his time as a hippie, to the creative innovator of one of the world's most recognizable corporations.

Writer Matt Whiteley has said of the movie, it's a "candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently".

With Ashton Kutcher playing the role of Steve Jobs, the movie is set to close the festival, which runs January 17-27 in Park City, Utah.

Steve Jobs tragically passed away at the age of 56 on October 5, 2011 after a long battle fighting pancreatic cancer.

Countdown to the release of jOBS, with the iPhone Movie Countdown Clock App.
