2 Mr Taransky...? She's... She's walking? Don't tell me she's walking. She can't walk. Nicola! This, this... - Not this. - Nicola...? How was your massage? You're in breach. Cigarette. Is this about the new pages? I made the changes... all the changes you wanted. You are virtually in every scene. It is not the size of the role, Viktor. Am I, or am I not entitled to the biggest trailer on the lot? Hmm? It's the biggest on earth. I swear. It's a 50-foot Airstream. They don't make them any longer. - Taller, Viktor. - Taller? - Taller! - What? Eh...? - You've insulted me for the last time. - You're right. It's actually... it's actually taller. - You're right. It's amazing. - Coffee?! Wait a minute... The tyres are overinflated. See? It's just this. Page 2/63

3 See? Look. Here. - The air comes right out. - This is so sad. See, it's lower already. - Nicola, please, don't do this to me. - I had three other offers. I only signed on to this picture out of loyalty. Well, then show me some. They're going to shut me down! It's not working, Viktor. I mean, my God! The scene with the thousand geese? I don't understand this film! Nobody is going to understand this film. Look, I already put out a press release citing 'creative differences, ' - So just let it go. - You went to the press? - Do we have everything? - Alright. You know what? You're right. You are right. And when you're right, you're right. - Thank you. - Let me help you with these. You ought to go. I don't deserve you. Oh. This film doesn't deserve you. It deserves much much better than you! 'Creative differences'? The difference is you're not creative. To hell, please. Jack? Jack are you there? She's good. You can hardly tell she's reading off a Teleprompter. I'm right here. Page 3/63

4 Right beside you. Look. I've analysed this footage. We've got everything we need in the can already. If I could just make the proper adjustments we can finish this film without her. According to the writ her attorneys filed at noon today they'll sue if the film is released with Nicola in a single frame. They will sue, Viktor. They're serious. So let's recast. Nicola Anders is the only actress in the world that could play that part. - It's a remake, Hal. - That's right. Nicola is not bigger than this picture. Of course she is, Viktor. No other 'name' is going to sign on now. Who needs a name? We'll cast an unknown. I'm not going to play opposite an unknown. - We can't sell an unknown. - The numbers don't work. If we ever want to be in the Nicola Anders business again we have to cut our losses and shelve the picture. No! I will not give in to that blackmailing... Viktor let's take a walk. Ridiculous performance. - I told you she was bad. - No, yours in there. Why do you always have to make things Page 4/63

5 so difficult for yourself? Difficult? I'm being difficult? Yes. Mm-hmm. Elaine, do you know what these are? - 'Mike 'n' lke's'? - They're not just any 'Mike 'n' lke's, ' these are cherry 'Mike 'n' lke's. ' Do you know why I Viktor Taransky two-time Academy Awardnominated director... That was 'Short Subject. '...overseeing the most cherished movie project of my entire career, am walking around with... look, look... pockets full of these things? - I have a feeling you'll tell me. - I'm going to tell you. Because Ms Nicola Anders... supermodel with a SAG card... has it written in her contract that all cherry 'Mike 'n' lke's' be removed from her candy dish along with strict instructions that any room she walks into must have seven packs of cigarettes waiting for her... three of them opened; that there be a personal Jacuzzi within 80 paces of her dressing room; and any time she travels, her nanny must fly with her first-class. So, what's wrong with that? Elaine, she doesn't have children. Don't you see? Page 5/63

6 They're mocking us. We're at their mercy. What happened? We always had movie stars, but they used to be our stars, remember? We were the ones that would tell them what to do. We would tell them what to wear - Who to date... - That's what you want? When they were under contract to us we could change their names at will. - Yeah... more than once. - Viktor, do you realise you're nostalgic for an era you weren't even born in? I do remember why I got into this business. - You seem to have forgotten. - Oh, please. Come on. New York... Cassavetes. Remember? - Here we go. - What were we doing? We were trying to make something important. I don't know. - Shine a light in that darkened cinema. - It's called a projector. Illuminate hearts and minds with a ray of truth. - Okay. - I thought that's what we were doing. I have good memories of those days, too. I do, but this isn't about that... or you, or me or some high-minded ideal. This is business. - Spare me. - Look around. Who do you think pays for all of this? This is about Page 6/63

7 investment and return. I'm not interested in investment and return! I'm not interested in who pays for anything! I'm trying to make a movie! I'm responsible for this, Viktor. Those days in New York... it's over, Viktor. You're not renewing my contract? How can I? Your last three pictures tanked. No bankable star is going to work with you after this. I mean, if you just compromised a little. Well, not every day you're fired by the mother of your own child. You and I both know that I kept you on after the divorce for old times' sake. And so you could still hold your head up in front of Lainey. - I fought for you. - Yeah, well... I'm sorry, Viktor. Dad! - Sweetheart. - Hey, Dad. - How are you, honey? - Good. I'm sorry Mum canned you. I'm going to finish this picture. Lainey, I'm going to finish it. Because it's important. I know you will, Dad. Page 7/63

8 You're Viktor Taransky. I'm Viktor Taransky. Okay. Bye, Dad. - Hi, sweetheart. - Hey, Mum. Are you okay? I'm Viktor Taransky. Mr Taransky? Mr Taransky, thank God. I've been trying to see you. I've been calling. Your assistant wouldn't put me through. I told her it was a matter of life and death. I was afraid I wasn't going to get to you in time. Please, just... - Keep your distance. - I did it! I did it! I licked skin I licked hair - I licked every part of her. - I'm going to call Security. I'll call Security if you don't back off. I have her Mr Taransky... the answer to your prayers. - The answer to this. - I was misquoted. I have your new leading lady right here... in my pants. Please, sir I don't know you. - I don't know where you come from... - It's me! Mr Taransky, don't... don't you recognise me? The 'Future of Film' Conference in San Jose. Remember that? Hank. Hank Aleno. Page 8/63

9 I was a keynote speaker. You must remember my speech... - 'Who Needs Humans? ' - Right. You were booed off the stage. I remember. - Whoa, that's got to be... - Eight years ago. In that whole time I never left my computer. - Uh-huh. Good for you, Hank. - Well, it's good and bad. That's what caused this... the eye tumour... - Microwaves from the screen. - Oh dear, I'm sorry. Don't be, because it was worth it. - You have to see her. - Oh, I've seen those. - Not like this. - I'll take care of that. Well, you're talking about a 'syn-thespian, ' a 'virtual actor. ' - No, we call them 'Vac-tors. ' - 'Vac-tors'? I need flesh. - No, we call them 'Vac-tors. ' - 'Vac-tors'? I need flesh. - Flesh is weak. - It can't be done. It can be done. With my new computer code, it can be done. You and me... we can do this together. I don't know anything about computers. See, that's why... you're so perfect, Mr Taransky. You have something... that I don't have. What's that? An eye... an eye for performance. Page 9/63

10 You know the truth when you see it. I know. I mean, I've seen your movies. I love your movies. - You love my movies? - 'Straw God'... that changed my life. You saw 'Straw God'? I have seen every frame of your work. You're the only filmmaker with the artistic integrity... to realise my vision. You and me art and science... we're the perfect marriage. Hank... I've had a rough day today. But I tell you what I'll call you about this next week. - We can talk. - I won't be here in a week. - The tumour is inoperable. - I'll call you about it, okay? That's what I'm trying to say. The tumour is inoperable. I'll be dead. Well, I'm already dead, Hank. Call me! This week! Please. What do you mean she won't work with me? She's done nothing. She doesn't have a single credit to her name. Better no credits than a Taransky credit. You don't understand. I've mortgaged everything to finish this film. The creditors are calling me. Page 10/63

11 They're at the door, for God's sake. Hello? Damn it! Mr Taransky. Mr Taransky! - Mr Taransky! - No, I'm not him! - Mr Taransky! - I'm not him! Mr Taransky! Hank Aleno! I represent the estate of Mr Hank Aleno. It was his last wish that you have this. What is it? I have no idea. He wanted you to have it. Valarie! Valarie! Valarie! Valarie, what are you running from? From Valarie. Valarie, no! Jack, are you there? Something like this can happen and what... was it for? 'Why are we here? ' Is that what you're asking, Jack? Why are we here? No 'why'... just here. Just here. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury I know I may be guilty of a crime but it was committed with the purest of intentions. I wanted to send a message to the acting community who... put themselves Page 11/63

12 above the work who put themselves above me. So, what did you guys think? So fake. Totally artificial. Like we're supposed to believe that was 19th-century Lisbon. - Come on. - Guys... who's looking at the sets when she's on screen? Oh, yeah. There he is. That's my dad Viktor Taransky. - She was magnificent. - She's absolutely unreal. Breathtaking. She wasn't too cartoony or anything? - Who, the nun? - Or are you talking about the mother? A star like that, who cares about the supporting cast? Congratulations again. She's not of this earth. - You should be very proud. - Oh... 'not of this earth. ' - And the rest of the film? - She's a miracle, Dad. Where did you find her? Well, I saw her picture on the computer. Computer? You really didn't notice anything unusual about it? Only your brilliance. To be honest with what you had to work with I was expecting a train wreck. - You really pulled it off. - I did? Yeah. I have a feeling Page 12/63

13 Mum will take you back after this. Back on the lot. That's what... I know. I know. Come on, let's go. A dazzling new ingenue has come from seemingly nowhere to capture the hearts of movie-going audiences around the world to capture the hearts of movie-going audiences around the world in her debut film 'Sunrise, Sunset. ' But who is Simone? We know so little about her. And why the secrecy? All we know for sure is that she was discovered by little-known director Viktor Tarinsky. Taransky. Simone! Simone? - Good to see you too, Elaine. - Where is she? - She's not here. - Why isn't she with you? Why? Because she would never come to something like this. She's intensely private. Back to work, everyone. She's not here. Hey, listen. Have you read the reviews? They're love letters. Listen to this one. Oh, here. 'Simone has the voice of a young Jane Fonda the body of Sophia Loren the grace of well, Grace Kelly... and the face of Audrey Hepburn combined with an angel. ' Page 13/63

14 - Almost right. - I can't wait to meet her. Oh, I don't know if that's going to happen. Why not? She is somewhat of a recluse. That's how she stays so pure. She isolates herself in her art. Viktor, it's my studio. Elaine, it's my actor. There are other studios. There's only one Simone. Okay, have it your way, Viktor. Hello, Walter. Nobody came in or went out just like you said. Very good. - Mr Taransky? - Yes? Is Ms Simone coming in today? She's already here. She arrived before you got here. She's going to leave long after you're gone. Remember under no circumstances are you or anybody else ever to enter this set without my express permission, understood? Yes, sir. Mr Taransky? What if it catches on fire? Let it burn. Good morning, Simone. Good morning, Mr Taransky. Simone, a star is... digitised. Page 14/63

15 Do you know what this means? We have stepped into a new dimension. Our ability to manufacture fraud now exceeds our ability to detect it. I am the death of real....death of real....death of real. Too much Meryl Streep. A little less Streep... and a little more... Bacall. Much. While we're at it there's a little something I want to add to your repertoire. You've got the wrong Holly Golightly. Remember that thing Audrey Hepburn does in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'? How do I look? - Give me Audrey. - How do I look? Perfect. Perfect, Simone. Perfect. Oh, God. I'm so relaxed around you. I'm so myself. You did create me. I just brought someone else's dream to life. Mr Taransky, we both know I was nothing without you. I was computer code. I was ones and zeros. I was nothing. Page 15/63

16 Well... that's true. I don't want to boast, but... Are you ever going to tell the truth about me, Mr Taransky? I'm going to tell the truth about you. Why wouldn't I? Of course... with Hank's tragic passing his secret did die with him. This is a classic case of technology in search of an artist. Someone with integrity someone with vision someone who can see... see beyond this irrational allegiance to flesh and blood. Someone who can see that with the rise in the price of a real actor and the fall in the price of a fake that the scales have tipped... naturally in favour of the fake. Someone who can see that if a performance is genuine it doesn't matter if the actor's real or not. And what's 'real' anymore? Most actors these days have digital work done to them. That's a grey area. The only real truth is the work. I'm going to tell the truth about you after your next picture. You're so beautiful. You're too beautiful. We're going to fix that. Page 16/63

17 Is this on? I will not be taking any questions regarding Simone. I do, however, have a statement to read on her behalf. 'To whom it may concern: I'm deeply grateful for the extraordinary public response to Mr Taransky's film. At this time I will be conducting no interviews - Or making publicity appearances... - This is unbelievable... I politely request that the press respect my privacy and let the work speak for itself. Yours truly, Simone. ' Viktor! Who is Simone dating? Where did you find her? - Is 'Simone' her real name? - Didn't I make it clear? No questions regarding Simone. We're just trying to get some answers. I will make my final statement. Ms Simone begins production on her new film today... 'Eternity Forever. ' This is a project which has been near and dear to my heart since I wrote it nine years ago. Thank you. Would you answer a question regarding 'Hank'? Hank? Who asked me about Hank? Funny, why is the movie dedicated Page 17/63

18 to Hank? Are they involved? They were at one time inseparable. Yes. - And now? - Now... sadly to say only in spirit. Thank you. Your car will be ready in just a minute. - We gave you complimentary car wash. - Oh, really? - Yeah. They're cleaning the engine now. - Thank you. - Viktor, hey. - Hal. I am so happy for us. The film, the chemistry... nothing against Nicola Anders but I think that Simone and I we really worked great together. - You were never together. - Still, the connection was undeniable. You can't... Look, I have not read 'Eternity Forever, ' but it is fantastic. And I know I would be perfect for the part of 'Clive. ' - 'Clyde. ' - 'Clyde, ' right. That's what I'm talking about. Yes, perfect. Come on, man. - I ran into Simone on the lot. - Really? - Yes, really. - She never mentioned it. She's busy right now. People coming at her from all angles. Maybe she didn't want you to know, huh? I strongly sensed that she thought Page 18/63

19 I would be perfect for 'Clyde' as well. - Really? - Strongly. - Excuse me. - Sure. Hello? Simone, it's so great to hear from you. How are you sweetheart? You'll never guess who I'm with. - You met him on the lot the other day. - It was more in passing. No, you're not even close. Hal. - Hal Sinclair. - What's wrong now? I'm getting nothing from her side of the conversation. No, I don't think he put on weight. Do you think he'd be right for 'Eternity Forever'? He's not the right type? You want to go in another direction? We'll try and talk her into it, don't worry. - Anything you can do. Anything. - Yeah, listen, honey... - Is this some kind of jamming device? - This is a bad place to talk. Maybe he's just talking to himself. Taransky's not that good an actor. Honey, I know you want to do charity work... No, they've taken special precautions. Some kind Page 19/63

20 of new encryption. Why would they do that? Well, whatever it is... it's dark. Dark? Yeah. Very. We'll talk at the beach house this weekend. - Can you ever stop doing that? - Why? You'll lose yourself in that thing. You gotta get out more. How you gonna meet boys? Dad, I know plenty of boys. You do? Who? Where do you meet them? You meet them in those chat rooms? How do you know it's not some middle-aged freak? I can spot a middle-aged freak a mile away. It's beautiful today. Let's go outside and eat. Lainey, leave the computer, please. Okay. Dad, it might be better to eat inside. Stay here. What is this? What the hell is going on? What are you doing here? - You're trespassing. - You can't hide her forever! Simone appears only when I want her to appear! Sounds like a prisoner. Are you holding her hostage? You're the hostage. You look kind of captive to me. Page 20/63

21 Lainey, don't you ever wonder where I'm really hiding Simone? Just as long as I know where you are, Dad. - Bye, Dad. - Bye, honey. Hello, Viktor. Sorry I got her back late. Oh, no problem. Hey, you want to come in? - Hi. - Hi, honey. - Hi, Vik. - Kent. Viktor, we simply have to discuss 'Eternity Forever. ' I still haven't received Simone's script notes. There aren't any. If the filmmakers are happy, she's happy. She considers herself... you know an instrument. So she's really going to do all this nudity? It's on the page. We have to do something about this budget. It's completely unrealistic. You allowed nothing for limousine service. - She drives herself. - Uh-huh. - Hair and makeup? - Does her own. - In her theatre training. - Oh, she was in the theatre? - Where? - I'll send you her resume. Page 21/63

22 Okay, great. Thanks. At least, Viktor, contingency for wardrobe. Anybody can go up a size. I guarantee she will not gain an ounce. She is so disciplined. We've gotta do something about this... stuntwoman. - What about it? - Well, there isn't one. She doesn't need one. Does all her own stunts. - Even the fall from the plane? - Even the fall from the plane. Oh. We'll shoot it on the last day. Listen, Viktor. I want to talk to you now not as Elaine, studio head but as Elaine, ex-wife... hey, second ex-wife. Seriously... you got lucky this last time but you need to be careful. We both know you wouldn't be making this overblown art film if you hadn't convinced Simone to be in it. Elaine... talking to you now not as Viktor, director but as Viktor your first former husband what happened to you? Hmm? Experience, Viktor. That's what happened to me. Yeah, I've seen this a hundred times. - Really? - Yeah. These young stars destroying the very people Page 22/63

23 who discovered them. I'm worried about you that's all. This woman, she controls your destiny. She doesn't control my destiny. There's something about her I don't trust. Hi, Jane. Thanks for taking me back Mr Taransky. I know that it looked like I sided with the studio but I've always believed in you. Honestly. Don't worry. I understand. Are they... - They're all here. - Okay, thank you. - Hello. - Viktor. I just want to say I am delighted to have such a wonderful cast assembled here for 'Eternity Forever. ' A reminder: as a condition for working on this picture you will not be rehearsing with Simone. You will not be shooting with Simone. Actually, you are forbidden from contacting Simone at any time for any reason whatsoever. - Works for me. - How will you shoot our love scenes? - Body double. - For her? Page 23/63

24 For you. Anyway, Simone insisted on speaking with you herself before filming started. I believe she's on the line now. Simone, are you there? I certainly am Mr Taransky. So are we, Simone. Why don't you leave me alone with my co-stars, Mr Taransky so we can get to know each other better? Absolutely. I'll be back in a minute. Hi, who's there? Don't be shy. Introduce yourselves. I'm Mac. I turned down a Bertolucci film to be here. Hi, Simone. I'm Corel. Hi, I'm Claris. You used to date my cousin, Dell. I'm Hewlett. We can rehearse in private if you like. My name is Lotus. God, I can't believe I'm talking to you. We are going to become such great friends. Hi, Simone it's Hal. It's great to be working together... again. Is that everyone? Well, obviously, as you know......l'm Simone. Who else? I just want to start by apologising for my process. I know it's an unusual way to work I just find I relate better to people Page 24/63

25 when they're not actually there. Oh, of course. Of course. I don't have much to say except that I know it's gonna be a great project if we all just trust Mr Taransky's vision. Always do what Mr Taransky says. If in doubt do it the Taransky way. I know we're gonna make a wonderful movie together. Together. Absolutely. Veronica. What you don't understand, Clyde - Is that love... - Still too big. I like it but it's too big. Alright. Smaller teardrops this time. What you don't understand, Clyde is that love is like a wildflower. But that flower only grows on the edge... of a very high cliff. Perfect. Perfect. Simone. Simone... Simone. Gonna be a little change in plans, Simone. You have no idea the effect your performance is having on people. We can't stop now. These films, they're speaking to the human condition. Page 25/63

26 We're changing lives. People need to believe you're real. To reveal the truth now it would be too cruel. You're gonna get in a lot of trouble, Mr Taransky. Why do you have to bring that up? I mean everything's a risk. But it's worth it isn't it? We've done enough work today. You've been cooped up in there too long. So how about you and I going out on the town? Tonight, they're going to see you with their own eyes. Excuse me. I will be checking in a very special guest. - A Ms Enomis. - Ah, Ms Enomis. Now, Ms Enomis demands her privacy so you will switch off all surveillance cameras. I alone will escort Ms Enomis to her room via the rear exit. She must not be disturbed at any time for any reason whatsoever. I'm sure I can rely on your discretion. Understood, sir. Thank you. There she is! - Who is it? - It's Simone. Okay, I think everybody's here. Page 26/63

27 Now! I think we're alright now. Oh, thank God for you, Faith thank God for you. I mean, this is way above and beyond the call of duty for a stand-in. I must tell you you have no idea the service you've performed for Simone shielding her from these animals. Oh, no, Mr Taransky. Thank God for you. - For me? - Yeah. How many directors would go to so much trouble to protect an actress? It's incredible. Well... you know, we're gonna have to go back to my place just to, you know keep them off the scent. Of course. You look so... So much like... like her? Oh, yes, of course like her. But you're so very beautiful in your own right. I do find myself strangely attracted to you Mr Taransky. Call me Viktor. Viktor. - Oh. - Oh, Viktor, Viktor. Page 27/63

28 - Viktor. - Yes? - This is so exciting. - Yes. Do what you do to Simone. What? What did you say? I said, do whatever you do to Simone. What I do to Simone? Call me 'Simone'! Simone? Yes. Say it again please. I want to know what it's like to be her just for one night. Please, call me Simone. You're with me so you can be close to her? Is that a problem? Okay. Excuse me just a minute. - Is something wrong? - Well, actually... maybe we can do this some other time - Or something. - Are you busy tomorrow? Gentlemen the presidential suite. Ahem... I think that should take care of everything. Yes, sir I believe it will. Leave me for a moment. Simone. - Brilliant. - Elaine! - There she is. - The picture... the picture... it's a revelation. Thank you. Thank you. Page 28/63

29 We all worked so hard. - It was you. - No, it was all of us. It was incredible. Thank you all. Thank you. - Whoa! - Viktor! Is she here? Hey, Viktor is she here? Oh, I'm fine, Hal. How are you? - Somebody said she was here. - Jesus. That's her glass. Jack Daniels straight up. - My kind of woman. - Come on, where is she? I don't know. She's... Is that her by the fountain? You know between you and me - She doesn't really exist. - Simone! - Simone! - Simone's here? - Why didn't anybody tell me? - She's here? - Simone! - I got your glass! - I'm your biggest fan! - Simone! Simone! - Simone! - Simone? Get out! Not you two. She goes to a major Hollywood A-list party and we don't get an interview... a comment? Page 29/63

30 We don't even get a photograph? Is that what you're telling me? Nobody got a photograph. Nobody ever gets a photograph. - Our best people are on it, Mr Sayer. - Get better people! What about the 24-hour tail on Taransky? They're camped out every place he goes. Every concierge every maitre d' they're all on the take. But this Simone woman is good. Obviously, that is not her real name. She uses an assumed identity. She travels under a false name. She checks into a hotel under an alias. Never stays in the same place two nights in a row. What about the satellite photos? What happened? - Nothin'. - Nothing from space? What about the fingerprints? What happened when we dusted that whole hotel suite? Well, we have some of Taransky's fingerprints a lot of yours... and none of hers. No one is that perfect that pure. You know, I had something on Mother Teresa once... and then she died and it just Page 30/63

31 wasn't worth it anymore. I know how to flush out this Simone woman... a 'tell-all' story from her childhood. You have one? I will when you're finished writing it. Please don't make me do this. Guard, open this door right now. - Mr Taransky gave me instructions... - No! - What are you doing? - Mr Taransky! - Why did you do this? - We have to talk to her! - We know she's in there. - Okay. What is this about? We've got the tracking numbers for 'Eternity Forever. ' - They're in the toilet. - She has to get out and sell the film. What do you want her to do go door-to-door? Even Garbo would be on the talk-show circuit if she were alive! It is precisely because she doesn't crave the limelight - That people love her! - This is bullshit! She is about the work and only the work! This is overshadowing the work. - If you can't handle her, I will. - It's not a good time. She's emotional. Today, her mother dies. Scene 42 of 'Good for Nothing. ' This is not a good time. - It never is. Step aside! - We're going in! Page 31/63

32 - This is ridiculous! - No! No! - What are you doing? - Simone! I trusted you. - Simone? - You can come out, it's Elaine! We just want to have a meeting. We can talk... girl-to-girl. Just us. - Where is she? - She's gone. - Where are the sets? - God, that is so like her. Where are the cameras? Viktor, we're not paying for this, are we? What is all this Viktor? What is all this? Well... I suppose... it was gonna come out sooner or later. I guess I'm actually relieved in a way. I can just say it finally. She's a computer... addict. What? She's a computer addict! She's buried in here. Day in, day out. Of course. I should have guessed. It's why she never goes anywhere why she's never seen in public. - Now you're getting it. - Spends her whole life in chat rooms. Page 32/63

33 - The one place she can be herself. - Anonymous. Only it's worse. It's far worse. She's extremely agoraphobic. She has a morbid fear of people of germs places, heights... name it. This is terrible. How is she going to plug the film? - Yes, indeed. - She has to do publicity. Maybe I could get her to do something. Maybe a television talk show or something. Yes! - Taped. - Make it live, please. - Live? - Please. She'd never go there. It would have to be remote. - We can work with that. - I can't promise anything. - We understand. - Thank you, Viktor. - Thank you, Viktor. - Don't grovel. - Thank you. - Give her our best. - That agoraphobia... it's like a plague. - It's out of control in Europe. It's so good of you to protect her like this. She wanted you... no, no... don't touch that. Germs. She wanted you to have that. Page 33/63

34 She was there. She was right there. Yeah. Oh, my gosh. She didn't, by any chance happen to mention me? Actually, she did. She... she said that she thought you were very beautiful. - Really? - Yeah. Would you want to go and get something to eat, or something? Viktor, I'd love to really but don't you have to go talk to Simone? If I can find her. Well... Alright. Good. Thanks, Viktor. Thank you. I'm gonna... bye. Tonight, on 'Frank Brand Live'... since taking the nation by storm in her debut movie 'Sunrise, Sunset, ' no one has managed to land a live television interview with this fabulous shooting starlet, Simone... until now. I'm happy to say that she's agreed to talk with us tonight from the set of her new film. Welcome, Simone. So glad you can find time in your hectic schedule to be here. It's my pleasure. Page 34/63

35 Wonderful to be with you, Frank. No one can accuse you of being overexposed, Simone. Why have you stayed so completely out of the limelight? I guess I just think actors talk too much. I mean, does the world really want to hear my life story just because I have a movie opening on Friday? Wow. She is all woman. Of course, the problem with shying away from publicity these days is that it tends to attract even more. Don't I know it. But the only reason I'm here now is to put the attention back where it belongs... on Mr Taransky's film. And you don't secretly want the attention? I'm not even sure I deserve it. You see, after tonight I'll have just as much screen time on your show as I have in my movies. Now, how is that healthy for a performer? Because you have to understand Frank, none of this is real. Who I am on screen and who I really am they're two totally different people. Change of topic, Simone. You have been romantically linked Page 35/63

36 to dozens of men in the press... Mick Jagger, Steven Hawking Fidel Castro most recently Viktor Taransky. Is there a 'Mr Right' in there somewhere? You know, Frank, I'd rather not discuss my private life. But Viktor and I we are inseparable. Oh, Viktor. You dog. I wouldn't be here today without him. Would you like a moment, Simone? No, I'm okay. Okay. Then let's talk about this work you care so much about. Sure. Where would you like to start, Frank? - How about the nudity? - I know where that is. Nudity's just never been an issue for me. - I know that tree. - Clothes are simply an option. I know that tree. I know where that is. What exactly attracted you to your first two projects? I suppose what I like most about the movies I'm in is that they're not about special effects. And they are better for it, I might add. We appear to be having some satellite difficulties. But before we lose you completely, Simone Page 36/63

37 I just want to say thank you. Thank you, Frank. Goodbye. Ladies and gentlemen Simone. I've been here before. On my honeymoon with my ex-wife. Yeah, look. It's the exact same tree. And look in the distance. The mountain. It's a hotel. I don't understand. Could they have built that hotel since yesterday? Get in the car. Simone! Simone! We don't do the photos you don't get the cover. It's as simple as that. Yes. Written answers to written questions. Didn't we have this conversation before? Yeah, web site interviews no problem. I think people are gonna love 'Eternity Forever. ' 'Eternity Forever' is my finest work. I loved working with the director of 'Eternity Forever. ' - He's a genius. - You wish. It's wonderful being a movie star... but there's so many other ways I want to express myself. But it's not enough to be a movie star. You have to be Page 37/63

38 a pop star, too... if you really want to make a difference. Nice boat, Taransky! It's not a boat it's a yacht. I know what you're up to. You know, I really don't have time for this. I think you do 'cause I know it's a fake. It's bogus. You used an old library shot of the background. She never was in New Mexico. She never even left the studio. I've done my homework. - I've studied her. - I bet you have. I've looked at every piece of publicity she's done. And as far as I can tell there's no evidence that she has ever left the studio. Oh... and for some reason this woman leaves no paper trail? Now, I've obtained a copy of your bank account. I know you have power of attorney but so far, you have not turned over a single solitary cent to this woman. I keep it in the trust. I know that's what you want people to believe but I've got to tell you Page 38/63

39 embezzlement is a serious matter. Not to mention abduction. - Abduction? - Yeah. Off the record... I want to know how you're doing it. Is it drugs? Is it mind control? Is it blackmail? Is it all three? What do you do? Do you keep her locked in a box somewhere? What is it exactly that you want? I want to see her. Unless you show me Simone live and in person I show these photos to the authorities. You want to see her? Alright. You've got a deal. You want to see her? You're gonna see her! Good! Mr Taransky. - Hello, gentlemen. - We're all ready. This time tomorrow night, she'll be standing in front of people. We could've sold this out 20 times. Yeah, the sound check went great. The laser show is good to go. I've got to ask you, though you ordered an awful lot of smoke. Well, that's the way she wants it. After you told us about the death threats security guards are under strict instructions Page 39/63

40 - Not to take their eyes off the crowd. - Excellent. Here, Simone wanted you to have these. Unreal. Remember... no cameras, no binoculars. Ladies and gentlemen Viktor Taransky Promotions is proud to present Simone... live on stage for the debut concert of the 'Splendid Isolation' Tour. Let's get you into hair and makeup. No. No. Yes. You know, it's easier to make believe than just one? And now, the one the only... Simone! I love you......l.a. It's great to be here. Thank you. Never stop believing. Yeah! Simone! I said I didn't want to be disturbed! Viktor. My two favourite girls in all the world. - We stopped by to congratulate Simone. - Well, you know... she's lying down. She's exhausted. Yeah, I can imagine. Listen, thank Simone for the tickets, okay? That's a good colour on you. It was Page 40/63

41 a great show, Dad. I can't believe she's doing this. Taking advantage of him this way. - It's cruel. - Why? Obviously, this can't last. She's gonna dump him. Viktor won't be able to take that he's too sensitive. This'll destroy him. Elaine, do you realise that you can't stop talking about Viktor? I have to talk to her. I've been meaning to talk to you. Elaine, I'm starting to feel like I don't exist. Dad? Oh, hi, baby. Thank you. So how's your love life? I do okay. What about you? Well, you know me. Married to my work. I noticed. You know I don't like to get between you and Mum but she's feeling down right now. She broke up with Kent. She thinks you're with Simone. Ah, Lainey. That's so ridiculous. I don't have a relationship with Simone. I know, but Mum doesn't. Maybe if Simone spoke to her she could Page 41/63

42 straighten things out. Dinner maybe. Dinner? I don't know about dinner. That'd be difficult I think. - Maybe a phone call? - It's too impersonal. They have to meet face-to-face. Well, I'll think of something. The escalating violence tragic loss of human life and threat of all-out war was overshadowed today by the announcement of the Oscar nominations. - Hello? - Hello? - Is this Elaine? - Who's this? - My God. Is that you, Simone? - Yes. - You look beautiful today. - Thanks, I... - Where are you? - I'm right here... beside you. - Oh! - I borrowed Viktor's car. - Hi! - Hi. I'm really late. I would love to talk to you but I'm on my way to see Viktor right now. Simone, I know what's going on between you two. Oh? No. Oh, Elaine there's absolutely nothing. It's strictly a working relationship. Page 42/63

43 I just don't want to see Viktor get hurt. Sounds to me like you still have feelings for him. Well, we have a daughter together. I don't love Viktor. I could never love anyone. I'm in love with the camera. Simone, I recognise the coat you're wearing. I gave it to Viktor on his birthday. Oh, Christ. Elaine, I just... Whoa! God! Oh my God! I tell ya. - Are you alright? - This does look awful. I know that. But, Viktor, he's just so crazy about you. - Could you go to the Oscars with him? - No, no, no. If you won't do it for him I ask you, please do it for me. Okay, okay. For you. For you I'll go. Thank you. Well, here's my exit. Alright, I'm glad that we talked. - Oh, yes. Bye. - Bye! Goodbye. Oh! And the winner of 'Best Actress'... is... oh my goodness. We have a tie. Page 43/63

44 The winners are Simone for 'Sunrise, Sunset'... Thank you....and Simone for 'Eternity Forever. ' Unfortunately, Simone cannot be with us here tonight but thanks to the miracle of modern technology she joins us live from her goodwill tour of the Third World. Ladies and gentlemen... Simone! Thank you. Oh, thank you. This means so much to me. I'm just sorry I couldn't be there with you. First, I want to acknowledge my fellow nominees. I don't even feel I belong in the 'Best Actress' category let alone with these wonderful human beings. And I also want to thank my co-stars and the studio of course. And as always I dedicate this to Hank without whom none of this would be possible. I love you, Hank wherever you are. Thank you. Who's Hank? Her agent? - Her father. - Oh. Why didn't she thank you? She did. Didn't she? Page 44/63

45 No. And of course I must thank my collaborator Viktor Taransky without whom none of this would be possible. And of course I must thank my collaborator Viktor Taransky, without whom none of this would be possible. Why didn't I say it? How could I forget to say it? I wrote it. And of course I must thank my collaborator Viktor Taransky without whom none of this would be possible. Excuse me, Mr Taransky are you ready for your casting session? Nicola is here for the role of Simone's sister. Viktor. So much has happened since we last saw each other. Oh, yeah. Yeah. - Why don't you sit? - Thank you. I never got a chance to properly apologise for what happened on 'Sunrise. ' Oh, that's okay. I know. I understand. When I saw what Simone did with the role I mean, I fired all my people. I went into rehab. I took some acting classes. I changed my whole look. Page 45/63

46 She really really inspired me. Would you like me to read? Oh, sure. That would be good. 'Who do you think you are, Carlos coming in here like this? My husband's sleeping in the next room. You think I won't call out? Do you think I'll just... give in to you without a fight like I did the last time and the time before that? I wish you were dead. I wish we were both dead. ' Oh... that was just wonderful. Wonderful acting. Thank you. You could play the lead. Isn't that Simone's part? Of course. Of course it is. You have such a beautiful line right, right there. It's not a wrinkle or anything it's like a dimple. Right when you smile, it... I was thinking of incorporating something like that in Simone. Cosmetically altering Page 46/63

47 Simone to look like me? Oh, yeah. That would be crazy. That would be crazy. Yes... that would be nuts. Would you like me to try something different with this, or do it again? No, it's fine. Okay. Thank you. Thank you, Viktor. Happy birthday, Lainey. What do you think? It's fantastic. It's what she drove in 'Eternity Forever. ' - I know. - See? - You have to thank her for me. - It's from both of us. You know, you won't be able to drive it till you get your permit, but you can take it around the lot, okay? Here. What's the matter? I can't accept it. Why? Why, honey? I don't want a car, Dad. What do you want? I'll give you whatever you want. The old Viktor Taransky. I can't stand to see you like this... clinging to Simone's coattails. It used to be all about the work and now it's all about her. Page 47/63

48 And then she's not even grateful enough to thank you. Oh, no, that was me. There you go again blaming yourself. Can't you see what she's done to you? She's taking advantage. Mocking you. You deserve better than Simone. - I have to go, Dad. - Okay. Oh, sure. She comes in all the time. - Really? - Mm-hmm. - Is she nice? - We've become very close. She told me she wanted to look at my script next week. - Jane? - Got to go. I'm leaving early. If anybody needs me I'll be at the beach house having dinner with a certain someone. Elaine Christian please. Elaine. Hi. Hi. I was in the neighbourhood. I just thought I'd drop by. You don't use the front door anymore? Uh... no. When is she coming over? - About now. - Oh. Okay. I'll just stay until she gets here. Well, she's... Page 48/63

49 already here. What? Elaine... Simone is not coming over tonight or any other night. - I want you back, Elaine. - I want you back, too. Oh, Viktor! Wait! Viktor! This is crazy. Who are we kidding? I can't compete with Simone. - Well... - What woman can? I'd rather have you than Simone. - Believe me. - Oh. That's so sweet. No, but I can't let you do that... make that kind of sacrifice. - No. No. - God, this is strange. You know, I have stabbed people in the back and clawed and slept my way to where I am. - But... - You have? Well, it goes with the territory. But for some reason I can't betray Simone. I can't. There's a goodness to her, Viktor. - No, there's nothing to her. - Oh, Viktor. You say that now but in the morning - You would go back to her. - No. No. Page 49/63

50 - You would, Viktor. - She's gonna retire. - She'll never work again. - Her public will demand that she does. - Not if I don't let her. - You? - Yeah. - How can you stop her? I'm gonna tell you a secret now, Elaine. Simone isn't a real person. I invented her. Every actor is an invention. - Elaine... - Please. You're lucky she's loyal enough to stay with you. Maybe she's staying out of pity. Who knows? I mean, she certainly doesn't need you. Listen, she's thin air. - She's pixels. - What? Computer code moulded by me from a mathematical equation I inherited from a madman. How much have you had to drink? There is no Simone. - I'm Simone. - You're Simone? I've done the impossible. I have recreated the infinite nuances of a human being... a human soul. I have taken nothing and made it something. Page 50/63

51 I have breathed life into a machine. - I made a miracle. - Viktor, please stop. - Please. - I swear, Elaine. As God is my judge I swear. I made Simone. I made her. - You made Simone? - Yes. Viktor... she made you. You bitch. I'll destroy you. Bravo! Yes! Yes! Yes! Had a rough night? Let's see if they still love you after this. You made me? I made you first. Well, we're back on 'Good Morning, Good Day, ' and we are here once again with the incomparable Simone. Simone, before the break you were taking a rather controversial position. I just think all elementary schools should have a firing range. How else can the children learn to defend themselves? If there is a hole in the ozone layer how come I can't see it? lmmigration? God! Isn't it crowded enough? But God created furry animals to be worn. Have you ever tasted dolphin? Page 51/63

52 Pan-fried with a little garlic and fennel? Everybody always talks about the negatives of cigarettes. But look at the benefits. I mean, you don't eat as much. And you've got something to hold in your hand. We always knew Simone wasn't like other celebrities. - Oh, no. - She speaks her mind. She certainly does. It's plastic, Hank. I know that's the way you'd want it. She killed you, Hank. Now she's killing me. She's a serial killer. But I don't know how to stop her. I mean, she's taken on a life of her own. I can't just come clean... you know, make some confession... because... I've defrauded millions. They'd turn on me. I just can't put the genie back in the bottle, because... if she suddenly stopped working you know, just dropped out of sight they'd never let it rest. I tried killing her career... but they like her even more. What am I gonna do? Not another word, Hank. Page 52/63

53 You are truly a genius. Thank you, Hank. Thank you. What's the matter Viktor? You look so sad. Don't you love me anymore? It's over, isn't it? I know what you're thinking, Simone. This is a phoney-baloney world. We're all living one big lie so, why shouldn't you live, too? You're more authentic than all these people who worship you. And that's the problem. You're looking at the real fraud. I told myself this was all about the work. But if that were the truth it wouldn't matter to me that you get all the attention. And it does. It does. I'm sorry, Simone. Here I was trying to convince the whole world you existed. But what I was really trying to do was convince them that I exist. It's not that you aren't human... It's that I am. Page 53/63

54 I'm sorry, Simone. It is my sad... and solemn duty... to announce... the tragic passing of Simone. How did she die? It was a rare virus she contracted on her goodwill tour of the Third World. Did she suffer? Mercifully it was quick. I feel awful. It's a great loss. You know, we're going to have to restructure your deal. Can I see you later? I mean, go away for the weekend? How could you bring that up at a time like this? One minute, Mr Taransky. Oh my God. This has got to be a mistake. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. - You don't understand. - Viktor! - It's a mistake! - I'll call my attorney. Dad! Elaine, call Bernard! That's why it was so light. I heard him say 'Die, bitch. I'll destroy you. ' It was so strange. He actually wanted Page 54/63

55 to replace Simone with me in his new movie. He's a sick man. He was a controlling madman. She was a prisoner. I blame myself. I wish I had done more to stop him. Forgive me Mr Taransky. I'm just trying to understand here. Now, all these films and TV appearances and magazine covers and Internet interviews publicity photos snapshots from her childhood... all fake? Hmm? This is fake? This is fake? Fake, fake, fake fake, fake. - All fake? - Yes. You understand perfectly. So I will confess... to fraud but not to murder. And a fan club with a worldwide membership in the millions that's also bogus? No. No. The fan club's real. It's just what they were worshipping is a computer code. Ones and zeroes. You couldn't have killed Simone because there was no Simone. Page 55/63

56 - Right. Exactly. - And this 'Hank Aleno' that you keep talking about renowned failure who also happens to be so conveniently dead. Now, perhaps this man that you claim helped invent Simone is an invention himself. Oh, no. No. This whole thing is insane! There is no Simone! Look... even her name is fake. It's not Simone. It's 'Sim one'... see? 'Simulation one'! It's a computer code! You really hated her didn't you? Perhaps you could explain this to me, Mr Taransky. Or is this tape doctored, too? This is footage from the marina's closed-circuit camera on the night in question... altered of course. Can you tell us why you're disposing of the body of a woman who doesn't exist? Well, it's not her body. It's her body... of work. Viktor, Viktor, Viktor. Viktor, I know. Look. Look. Look. Why don't you just come clean? Huh? Just tell the truth, you're gonna feel better afterwards. Page 56/63

57 I'm telling the truth and I don't feel so good. Hey, we all know what happened. In a fit of jealous rage you killed Simone and you dumped her body off the boat... - Don't say that....that she bought for you. I did... I can prove... I can prove it to you. Let me just take you there. I'll take you to the spot. I can prove it. Here. Here. Come on. We can just go there can't we? - Let's go. I'll take you there. - Oh, Viktor. Okay, good. Thank you. Good work. Now you'll see. What is this? No, there's drives and discs. Where are the discs? You have to go back down and get them. - That's where they are. - We can't go back down there. - There's discs down there! - Calm yourself! - Please! - Sit him down. You must go down and get the drives. Hey, you see what's down there? Plead guilty. Page 57/63

58 Plead guilty and throw yourself on the mercy of the court. It's the best deal you're gonna get. I could get the death penalty. Yeah. Yeah. You certainly will if you go to trial. A jury, in this kind of ugly mood... you killed an icon for God's sake. - Bernard, listen to me! - Viktor! Bernard I didn't kill anyone. Viktor, come on it's in the paper. There's no one to kill. Bernard I'm a filmmaker. I was trying to say something. I wanted recognition. I wanted to be appreciated... so I created her. Bernard, there's no one to kill. Do you understand? An insanity defence. Beautiful. Fantastic. - What are you doing? - 'I created her. ' Viktor! Jesus! Jesus Christ, Viktor! What am I doing? Oh, what am I doing? - Get me out! - Viktor! Page 58/63

59 Get me another lawyer. I want another lawyer! Why can't people just take responsibility for their actions anymore, huh? You know, I can almost forgive him for killing her. But to deny her existence? I can never forgive that. Because obviously she existed, right? I know it just as surely as you're sitting there. She was the most vital woman I ever met. So you did meet her? Yeah... Lainey what are you getting at? I'm the head of a major studio. Do you think I'm gonna make a three-picture deal with an actress I never met? No. No. I mean, really meet her... like in the flesh? I know it's embarrassing to admit it, Mum but when I think about it honestly, I haven't. I've never really seen Simone up close... touched her. Been in her physical presence. Have you? We don't want to believe Daddy because we don't want to believe that we were taken in too. But, Lainey... there's no evidence Page 59/63
