Things are beginning to quiet down in Park City, but the Sundance Film Festival will wrap up this week with "Jobs," the first finished biopic about Apple founder Steve Jobs (Sony is also working on an ambitiously structured project penned by Aaron Sorkin).

jOBS Ashton Kutcher

Things are beginning to quiet down in Park City, but the Sundance Film Festival will wrap up this week with "Jobs," the first finished biopic about Apple founder Steve Jobs (Sony is also working on an ambitiously structured project penned by Aaron Sorkin). And while it's slated to hit theaters in the spring, a new clip has arrived that gives you a sense of what Ashton Kutcher is like in the lead role...

...and he's more or less Michael Kelso from "That '70s Show" with a mustache and beard. In the scene, we see a young Steve Jobs marvel at the idea that a computer could actually let you see what you're working on as you do it (this concept eventually developed into the graphical user interface we all take for granted today), while Josh Gad's Steve Wozniak doesn't quite grasp the vision just yet of where Jobs is going with all of this. To be certain, Kutcher nails the passion, even if the dialogue is completely on the nose about the importance of what they're talking about.

So does Kutcher pull it off? Tell us below, and celebrate Apple's 37th anniversary by seeing "Jobs" when it opens on April 19th.
