Griff the Invisible
- Rated PG-13 | 1 hour, 30 minutes

Griff (Ryan Kwanten) is a bullied Australian nerd who finds relief as a suited superhero in dark alleys. He meets a brainy nerdette (Maeve Dermody), and their romance comes into focus as they work on becoming invisible. The stars are okay, the effects are quaint, but writer-director Leon Ford depends too much on the music track, and his reach for a romantic fable of misunderstood loners turns into a puddle of warm drool. 2011.
