The interior of the huge dome where the futuristic congress takes place, during the animated sequence, is based on the Reich's Great Hall, a massive project made by Hitler and his Minister of Defense, Albert Speer. The building, if it had been built, would have been 1000 ft. tall and able to house 15,000 spectators, making it the largest interior space up to date. See more »
Does that make sense? Or is this just in my mind?
Ultimately, everything make sense. And everything is in our mind.

Robin Wright is a struggling diva actress with opportunities slowly drying up. Her son Aaron (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is slowly losing his sight and hearing as he's treated by Dr. Barker (Paul Giamatti). Al (Harvey Keitel) is her agent. Sarah (Sami Gayle) is her daughter. She sells her digital image to the studio for a big payout and she isn't allowed to perform anywhere else. Twenty years later, her image is popular and she is invited to speak at the Miramount Congress. The world is animated where people take on an avatar.
The subject matter is very Hollywood and not an interesting one for me. It's more compelling for actors and philosophers. It's a bit silly to have an hand-drawn animated avatar. They made that little scene of lifelike avatars example. It should have followed that track. I like that type of outsider animation but it makes no sense for this movie. Also the movie is very slow. The plot is a mess. The acting in the live action is pretty good from top notch people. The movie should have gone a different way.
