About the Movie

Critically acclaimed director Viktor Taransky (Academy award-winner Al Pacino - "The Godfather," "Scarface") has just lost his last shot at a comeback when his temperamental flesh and blood actress walked off his movie. Fired by his ex-wife and studio head, Taransky just lost any hope of recapturing his former life. But then computer genius Hank Aleno enters the picture. As his dying wish, Hank bequeaths software to Taransky that will change his life forever. Just a few key strokes and an overnight sensation is born: S1MØNE. S1MØNE is beautiful, she's talented, and she's virtually perfect in every way except one. She's not real. Suddenly, Taransky has a taste of the success he always craved and the world's most beloved star under his thumb. Or does he? Starring Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Winona Ryder ("The Age of Innocence," "Girl, Interrupted"), and Rachel Roberts (TV's "Ugly Betty," TV's "Entourage").

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Niccol smartly contrasts the bland, blond beauty of computer-colored Simone ... with the brunet vividness of Keener. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: A witty and sharply written Hollywood satire that is entertaining, if a bit directionless. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: An industry satire that's less funny than half-empty and hyper-designed. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Aug 28, 2002

Rotten: Simone is not a bad film. It just doesn't have anything really interesting to say. – Paul Clinton (,, Aug 24, 2002
