Product Description

Ryan Kwanten of TV s True Blood stars in this charming, quirky and totally unpredictable romantic comedy about the superhero in all of us. Griff , a shy and awkward office worker by day, finds escape from his ordinary life by assuming the identity of a fantastic superhero each night. Griff s secret is jeopardized when he meets Melody, a cute but unconventional daydreamer. She quickly becomes fascinated by his idiosyncrasies, which are equaled only to her own.

Amazon.com

True Blood's Ryan Kwanten puts his Louisiana accent aside for this offbeat return to his Australian roots. Kwanten plays Griff, a Sydney customer-liaison agent by day who dons a rubber superhero suit by night in actor-turned-director Leon Ford's sweet, semi-surrealistic romantic comedy. If Griff proves successful in his self-appointed role as nocturnal protector, no one ever thanks him for his services, but he persists in the belief that it's his responsibility (Ford suggests that these successes may all be in his head). Furthermore, his office coworkers are a shallow lot, especially Tony (Toby Schmitz), who bullies him for sport, so Griff goes it alone until his brother, Tim (Patrick Brammall), introduces him to his sort-of-girlfriend Melody (Maeve Dermody, projecting equal parts warmth and beauty), a hardware store clerk who lives with her parents, believes in parallel worlds, and describes herself as an experimentalist. Melody pursues Griff, despite her mother's entreaties to stick with Tim in hopes that marriage will result. Meanwhile, Griff becomes obsessed with invisibility after his boss tells him he's too visibly uncomfortable with his colleagues. When Melody discovers his secret life, she helps him to construct an outfit designed to evade detection, but by getting involved, she only encourages the delusion that he's more special than everyone else--including her. If Griff the Invisible begins in cuteness and quirk, it ends in a more emotionally believable place. Extras include a featurette, video diary, and set tour, plus deleted scenes and commentary from Ford, Brammall, and cowriter Nicole O'Donohue. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

By day Griff has the usual office job where he is bullied by his workmates and is only ever visited by his brother who tries to make Griff conform to society. By night Griff takes on the alternate persona as the town's superhero protecting the city streets. Griff is invisible to the world until he meets his brother's new girlfriend, Melody who turns Griff's life upside down with her eccentricities that only match his own.

Griff the Invisible is a very touching story that blends the lines between reality and illusion that is definitely worth at least one watch and I would highly recommend it. The story isn't too similar but if you like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind this movie is definitely worth a chance.

This movie has great acting and a great story. The two main characters are the type of people we don't normally get to see in films, and this was one of the reasons I loved the movie so much. Another thing that stands out to me is that the characters retain these weird personalities right through the end of the movie; which is kind of comforting. (In other movies you might see this type of character being changed into a 'normal' person by the end of the movie).

Ryan Kwanten really did a great job and was completely believable as a strange and meek type of person. I was very surprised at his performance since I'm used to seeing him in True Blood as a completely different type of character.

The music in this movie is OUTSTANDING. I kept finding myself making mental notes to look up what artist sang this song or that song. I wish there was a soundtrack I could buy from this movie.

I definitely recommend this movie if you are tired of the same old same old romantic comedies coming out of Hollywood lately.

I loved "Griff The Invisible" ! This film explores the idea that, if perception is reality, then reality is subjective. Wonderfully acted. Beautifully made. Fabulous soundtrack.

Here's a quirky, touching little film that accomplishes so much more than just about every instantly forgettable multi-million dollar blockbuster. Griff is an Australian office worker, shy & awkward, who lives a fantasy life as a superhero -- much to the frustration & concern of his older brother Tim, a well-meaning but clueless member of the social mainstream. Melody is Tim's sort-of date, who speaks of living in a bubble where she can talk to people, but never truly communicate with them ... until she meets Griff, who is clearly a kindred spirit.

Simply on the level of a sweet romantic comedy, this works wonderfully. The two leads are attractive, and the viewer feels for them, waiting for that moment when mutual love makes itself undeniably known. Griff has to deal with an obnoxious office bully & his own social anxiety; Melody appreciates her loving parents but knows they simply can't understand her (though her mother surprises her & the viewers as well toward the end of the film).

But there's a lot more going on here, at least for those with eyes to see: questions of what constitutes both normality & reality -- the tendency to pathologize eccentricity, or a different experience of the world that doesn't harm anyone else -- the rigid & often unforgiving nature of the conforming mainstream. Yet it doesn't shy away from the possibility that our two young lovers may be dangerously past the point of simple eccentricity, either.

In a deleted scene, Melody talks about the billions of realities that exist within each human being, in the universe of the individual mind. This reminds us that everyone, including ourselves, never experiences the world around us precisely as everyone else does -- there are always shades & tones that are peculiar to us.

Liked it, not loved it. But was worth watching. It seems the director was very good at making it seem to watcher that the lead really did have a high tech set up and super abilities, but in the end you see his psychosis for what it is. Good movie.

Very funny! It was fun, novel, exciting, and anything except boring. I have never seed a movie quite like this one and it was refreshing.

This is a really great movie, it's not a Kick Ass style average guy putting on a superhero suit and fighting criminals movie, although if you stumbled onto it after it just started on TV or something you might think so at first. It's about a socially awkward man who has the mindset of a child at times but is also at least in his mind a genius. He doesn't have any friends and believes this is so, as he would put them in danger since his destiny is to fight criminals in his neighbourhood. However his older brother has moved back from Adelaide after a past event we don't learn much about but has something to do with his crime fighting and that he also was being bullied where he used to work. His brother has through a friend gotten him an office job and randomly pops in with surprise visits to Griff's home to keep encouraging and somewhat demanding he keeps acting normally. He interrogates Griff about his job and Griff hides the fact he is constantly being harassed and tormented by a bully and the girl he is having an affair with, while the other office workers turn a blind eye, including his so called brother's friend. One day the brother mentions, Melody, a girl he's met, and brings her by on a surprise visit. Melody doesn't seem to like the way the brother is talking about her as if they are about to get married, and even less how he talks down Griff. She sees something in Griff, she doesn't see his behaviour as wrong and tries to strike up a friendship, but Griff is worried his brother won't like it and that Melody will be in danger from Griff's calling to fight evil criminals if he lets her hand around. Griff has his own plans to deal with the office bully, and while at home is trying to perfect his suit that turns him invisible to help him fight crime.Read more ›
