They would like to scan her entire being into their computers and purchase ownership of her image for an astronomical fee. Now that her digital image is secure, Wright goes on to be an ageless movie star for years to come. "The Congress" is both bizarre and enchanting, a kaleidoscopic mix of live-action and animation.
