Plot Summary

The career of a disillusioned producer, who is desperate for a hit, is endangered when his star walks off the film set. Forced to think fast, the producer decides to digitally create an actress "Simone" to sub for the star--the first totally believable synthetic actress. The "actress" becomes an overnight sensation, with a major singing career as well, and everyone thinks she's a real person. However, as Simone's fame skyrockets, he cannot bear to admit his fraud to himself or the world. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Trivia In the beginning of the movie, Viktor Taransky (Al Pacino) is removing all the red candies from a bowl of assorted colored candies. He subsequently has a heated conversation with Winona Ryder's character. As a demanding actress her contract specifies that she has the largest trailer on the set, she must always be provided with these candies sans the red ones. This is a reference to a 1982 contract rider for the rock group Van Halen, who required that they be provided with specific foods and drinks. This included a bowl of M&Ms with all the brown ones removed (according to David Lee Roth during a Van Halen concert. this was a test to make sure the lawyers were paying attention to their other more legit and logical demands). The removal of the candies wasn't itself important, but was instead a test by the band to see if the contract had been thoroughly read and executed exactly as instructed. This was to ensure the safety of the band, crew and fans at the concert. See more »
Goofs The hard drive which holds "S1m0ne" data is shown to be without a cover over the disk platters. Viktor (Al Pacino) is shown to put his hands on the surface of the top platter when he inserts the hard disk into his PC. Any reasonably well informed PC user or repairman knows that a hard disk's platters are extremely sensitive to both dust and finger oils: exposing the platters to open air and finger oils would quickly render the hard disk useless. While we can't expect Viktor to know this, we can expect his scientist/supplier Hank Aleno to have known this. Hank Aleno should not have provided such an obviously unreliable piece of PC hardware.
