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.
Trivia & Production Notes
- "What does it matter if celebrities are real?" asks native New Zealander Andrew Niccol, the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter of The Truman Show and writer/director of Gattaca. "Our celebrity-obsessed culture can't tell the difference anyway. Our ability to manufacture fraud exceeds our ability to detect it."
