This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Simone is a hilarious, inventive satire on the inner workings of Hollywood. Al Pacino gives one of his most refined roles as an aging director who's movies have lost their popularity.

One day he meets a fan who is about to pass away in a week due to inoperable brain cancer. Al Pacino receives a package a week later. The package is a computer disc. The disc gives him the ability to create a

digital actress ! Once he creates Simone which means simulation one in the movie hinting that she is imaginary not a real person, he is set. His movies regain their momentum, he reconnects with his

daughter and wife and everything seems perfect.However when something feels too good to be true or everlasting it usually is. His creation backfires and he is almost arrested for the murder of Simone. He

attempts to dispose of the disc by dumping a trunk into an ocean. The disc is the only evidence Simone exists and that he isn't a murderer. When the police retrieve the trunk it is empty. In the end Victor Taransky is let off

of the charges because Victor's daughter is computer savvy. She discovers that the Simone program isn't erased on his computer and she restores the program. Then she has Simone release a public video

statement that she is alive and that Victor is innocent. There are also a few cameos in the movie by Jay Mohr, Winona Ryder and Rebecca Stamos from X-Men (Mystique character). A very satisfying movie with a

classic, brilliant performance from Al Pacino.
