Ashton Kutcher’s performance as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut about a modern-day Don Juan are leading a slew of star-studded premieres unveiled for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
Kutcher stars in Jobs, a biographical look at the career rise of Jobs from wayward hippie to charismatic inventor and entrepreneur, which will officially close the indie film festival.
The premiere line-up also features Gordon-Levitt directing, writing and starring in Don Jon’s Addiction, about a self-centred porn addict attempting to reform his ways, opposite Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore and Tony Danza.
Sundance, the top US film festival for independent cinema, held in Utah, unveiled the premieres section after it announced its competition films last week.
Adding to the premieres list is Before Midnight, director Richard Linklater’s third film collaborating with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy after Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, which follows their characters nine years later in Greece.
