Factual error: In the scene of the concert, Simone is a hologram but the microphone is real, as it is set up in the previous scene with Viktor and crew going over details, but one shot shows Simone holding and singing into the microphone, which is impossible for a hologram to pick up. (01:03:40)
Trivia: Winona Ryder's onerous contractual stipulation about her being provided a bowl of Mike 'n' Ikes with the cherry ones removed was based on the rock band Van Halen's actual contract, which contained a similar clause about green M&Ms. Its purpose was to ensure that the rest of the contract would be followed to the letter.
Trivia: References to "Pygmalion" - both the Greek myth and the G.B. Shaw play which became "My Fair Lady" - occur in "Simone." There is a brief shot of a famous painting of Pygmalion and his "creation" Galatea. The inventor of the "Simone" computer program is named Hank - a nickname for Henry (Higgins?). And Viktor chooses Audrey Hepburn as the "voice" for Simone. Ms. Hepburn appeared as Eliza Doolittle in the film "My Fair Lady."
Simone: Are you ever going to tell the truth about me, Mr Taransky?
Viktor: You made me, but I made you first.
Viktor: A star is digitized. You know what this means? We have stepped into a new dimension. Our ability to manufacture fraud now exceeds our ability to protect it.
