Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Indomina Releasing has premiered the trailer for writer/director Leon Ford’s Griff the Invisible, an offbeat romantic comedy that stars True Blood‘s Ryan Kwanten as a man who escapes his ordinary existence by becoming a costumed hero at night. But his secret is jeopardized when he meets a cute daydreamer played by Maeve Dermody.
I was ready to write this movie off, despite the involvement of the likable Kwanten. But after watching the trailer, I think I’m sold on Griff. The film debuts to limited release on Aug. 19, but hopefully it’ll get picked up for wider distribution — or make the jump to On Demand.
The world can make us invisible. Courage can make us incredible. Love can make us invincible.
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 (Kwanten), 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 (Maeve Dermody), a cute but unconventional daydreamer. She quickly becomes fascinated by his idiosyncrasies, which are equal only to her own. In the face of mounting pressure to live in the “real world,” it’s up to Melody to rescue GRIFF THE INVISIBLE for the sake of herself, Griff and their newfound love for each other.
