If you are more of a main stream movie watcher then I would avoid this. A movie that I really enjoyed but it isn't for everyone.
19 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"We at Miramount want to scan you. We want to preserve you. We want to own this thing called Robin Wright." Robin Wright (Wright) is an actress who is starting to get older and is losing work because of it. When the head of a movie studio makes her an interesting offer she reluctantly accepts. What happens next is hard to explain. This is a very difficult movie to talk about and review. First thing I have to say is that I did very much enjoy it and this is one of the most original movies I have seen in a long long time. On the other hand this is also a movie that is very hard to recommend. This is a combination of heavy drama, sci-fi and animation. Kind of an updated version of Simone mixed with Cool World in a way. I liked this and if you are looking for something very original and different then I would rent this. If you are more of a main stream movie watcher then I would avoid this. Overall, a movie that I really enjoyed but it isn't for everyone. I give this a B+.
