In Hollywood, the land of illusion, never have those words rung so true... until S1MØNE. Viktor Taransky (Al Pacino) is a down-and-out Academy Award-nominated director who loses his last chance for a comeback when temperamental actress (Winona Ryder in a cameo role) walks off his set. But now computer genius Hank Aleno (Elias Koteas) shows-up. S1MØNE is a director's dream: She won't get old, won't gain an ounce. She'll never need rehab, doesn't have an agent, manager, entourage or guru. She won't demand a bigger trailer or a private jet. She does her own stunts. She has no problem with nudity. The only power she craves comes from an electrical outlet. What could possibly go wrong?

Critics Consensus: The satire in S1m0ne lacks bite, and the plot isn't believable enough to feel relevant.

Though at times the satire is over the top, Simone raises some interesting and troubling questions...

An industry satire that's less funny than half-empty and hyper-designed.

Coolly observed, savvy satire.

It goes on a little long, but isn't terrible.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the theme of this movie is lying, and while Viktor suffers for his lies, he pretty much gets away with them. Characters drink and smoke. And the movie has the Parent Trap problem of reuniting divorced parents, which may be a difficult subject for some families.
