Simone

Continuity mistake: After Viktor has read out the 'statement' from Simone at the press conference, and then runs off leaving, all of the other journalists that were seated jump up from their chairs and run after him - apart from Max and Milton who are sitting at the back. But in the following closeup of them you can see the shoulder of somebody sitting down in front of them, even though in the previous shot everybody else got up and ran after Viktor. (00:27:45)

Continuity mistake: When Viktor and Elaine are talking to each other in the studio warehouse, after all of the other studio executives leave, Viktor hands over a framed photo that has her and Simone in it. In the closeup as we see the picture frame with Elaine's hands holding it either side, both of her hands are empty. But in the next wideshot we see Elaine holding a pair of glasses in her left hand which was previously empty. (00:51:45)

Continuity mistake: When Viktor is in his beachouse with Jane (the woman who looks similar to Simone), they are fooling around and kissing. During the scene while Jane askes Viktor to call her Simone as they kiss, Viktor's left hand can be seen on Jane's right shoulder in some shots, but in other shots is is gone, then on her shoulder, then gone, etc. (00:42:50)

Continuity mistake: In the beachouse we see Lainey using her laptop in a closeup and she is researching a website that has a bright white layout. However in the next shot as we see her using the laptop from behind, her laptop screen is completely blacked out and dark and there appears to be nothing on the screen at all, even though she still pretends to type. In addition the pile of dinner napkins, knives and forks, on the counter to the left of Lainey changes from being almost beside her, to suddenly being almost on the other end of the counter.

Continuity mistake: When Viktor is pacing back and forth in front of the large computer screen in the warehouse, talking to the studio executives about Simone being agoraphobic, he then comes to a stop and agrees that maybe she would do a television interview. As the shot switches back and forth, Viktor jumps from standing in front of the centre of the screen, to at the side of it and back again instantly. (00:51:05)

Continuity mistake: When the representitive of Hank's estate is chasing Viktor across the beach, he finally catches up to him and tells him he has something for him which was left for him in Hank's will. Between the wideshot and closeup of the representitve opening the satchel, the newspaper he clutches in the same hand (in front of the satchel) completely changes position. (00:13:35)

Continuity mistake: When Viktor is sitting at the computer system in the studio warehouse, sipping Jack Daniels and talking to the s1m0ne simulation on the computer screen, he begins to talk about "actors getting digital work done to themselves, it being a grey area, etc." - during this part, there is a pen, which jumps from the desk to Viktor's hand to the desk, instantly through subsequent shots.

Continuity mistake: When Viktor is sitting at his home computer as he first operates the s1m0ne programme, the items on the desk beside him (parcel paper, wiring, etc.) continue to shuffle positions between shots. Also during the same shots Viktor's hands continue to instantly jump from either in his lap, or to clutching the side of the desk. (00:14:15)

Continuity mistake: When Viktor is in the studio warehouse, operating the s1m0ne programme on the computer inside, as he first comes into the warehouse to sit at the desk he throws down a large black file on the edge of the table. As the scene continues, in some shots the file is positioned at an angle and in other shots it is positioned perfectly straight. (00:21:20)
