What's in store for Sundance 2014

Smack in the middle of awards season, there'll be a little thing happening called Sundance. Perhaps you've heard of it?

Clearly we jest, as it seems that with every passing year the Sundance Film Festival becomes the place to see celebrities and be seen ogling them.

For the 2014 competition, expect to see several A-listers vying for the grand jury prize, including Peter Dinklage, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Anne Hathaway.

The 2013 Sundance Film Festival will have plenty of comedies in competition, but it'll be the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic "jOBS" that will close out the event.

The indie feature, directed by Joshua Michael Stern, covers 30 years of Jobs' life, from his days as a college dropout to becoming a defining figure in technology.

Not to be confused with Aaron Sorkin's biopic of the late visionary, who died in October 2011, "'jOBS' is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently."

Not only is he an actor with TV shows to his credit (“Unforgettable,” “Pan Am”), TV commercials (Geico and AT&T), but he’s a budding polyglot. He speaks Chinese - fluently. And Russian - fluently.

Oprah Winfrey would not disagree.

In the new documentary “Under African Skies,” which is premiering at Sundance, Oprah reveals “Graceland” is her favorite album ever (Stevie Wonder’s “Songs in the Key of Life” ranks second in her book).
