Great idea, a foiled execution
18 August 2014 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A formerly famous actress who lost it all through poor choices she made has one more chance. A large studio offers to clone and copy her, make lots of movies and TV series with her whilst pay her very generously at the same time.

There is a catch however; she will have no say in the choices the studio will make on her behalf.

So far, so kind of good. The story is unusual and were genuinely intrigued as to where it will lead.

From the moment she agreed despite her reservations (she was not exactly enthusiastic about being cloned although the lack of other offers forced her hand) the story took a turn from which it never recovered.

Fast forward 20 years, she goes to attend a conference and she suddenly enters an animated world where we remained clueless as to what was real, hallucination, present or past. This remained the case until the end credits.

A creative idea that lost its way and when the audience starts talking to one another or checking out their phones it is clear this film has failed in its aim.
