Director: Ari Folman

Writer: Ari Folman

From novel: The Futurological Congress by Stanislaw Lem

Keywords: Sci-Fi

An aging actress agrees to hand her likeness over to a studio to create a digitized performer, with unforeseen consequences.

(broken link, Robin Wright), an attractive actress decades removed from her breakthrough role in The Princess Bride, faces dwindling career prospects brought about by her recent string of bombs and impending middle age. Her agent gives her one final offer on behalf of the head of film studio Miramount: Submit her likeliness to be used for the world's first forever-young digitized actress, accepting compensation that would allow her to drift into quiet obscurity as a mother to an ailing son. Complications arise when Robin, who agrees to the offer, is called into an all-virtual "Congress" two decades later to renegotiate her contract, as her digital likeness rises to global superstardom.
