Unfortunately, the moviemaker seems to have lost himself among the countless counterfeits of Hollywood.

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

Fails on all points of plot, characterization, plausibility and realism...

Para funcionar da melhor maneira, a stira tem sempre que manter um p na realidade. Porm, ao perder este contato com o mundo real, S1m0ne se transforma em fbula - e sua fora desaparece.

We can see that Simone looks fake, and we can tell that her acting is flat and lifeless, and it is embarrassingly obvious that Roberts is unable to capture the gestures of the great performers her character supposed to be made from. So what's the point?
