The Steve Jobs biopic entitled 'jOBS' and starring Ashton Kutcher will close the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

The film was written by Matt Whiteley and also features Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Trevor Groth, director of programming for the festival, said that the film was chosen to close the festival because “there's something inspirational about it. To see what he achieved by just like staying true to his vision is something that, you know, I think a lot of people can relate to and get hope from.”

Festival director John Cooper said Kutcher’s portrayal the Apple co-founder will resonate with viewers. “Ashton Kutcher's performance I thought was quite remarkable," Cooper said. "It's a very formidable performance by him and it seemed like he really tried to grasp all the nuances of who Steve Jobs was.”

The decision to cast Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs has been criticized by some; however, he does bare a striking resemblance to the young entrepreneur.
