Nick Powell is an excellent high-school student who raises money by selling homework and results of quizzes to his schoolmates. He aims to travel to London for a writer's course - telling his best friend, Pete Egan, that he has already bought the airplane ticket but he has not told to his mother yet. Annie Newton has a problem with Pete, who owes money to her. As events unfold, due to a case of mistaken identity Nick takes a severe beating from Annie and her gang, his body dumped in a sewer. The next morning, he discovers he cannot be seen - he is now a spirit in a state of limbo and can only observe as the events of that day unfold. Written by

"The Invisible" is based on the Swedish film Den osynlige (2002), which was very loosely inspired by a novel of the same name by the Swedish writer Mats Wahl. See more »
When Nick was walking home from the party, he kicked over a big trash can and a trash bag. The big trash can landed in the middle of the street and rested on one of its handles. The very next close up shot of Nick, you can clearly see in the background that the trash bag and trash can are back on the curb. See more »
It wasn't easy when Nick's father died, raising a teenager alone. But with a boy like Nick, well, he is now everything a mother could want. We've been through some hard times. We've carried each other. Now I look to the future, and I know there's nothing that we can't do together.

This must be the worst movie I've seen in ages. The story is really lame, although it starts out good, but the movie turns into a very sentimental, cliché movie. The main characters are not believable, without an real depth. The female lead is supposed to be this angry young girl, but of course turns out to be not so bad at all, and this is symbollicly shown when she shows us, the audience, the first real good look at her face and -surpise!- she turns out to be this beautiful girl. How lame. The movie has this terrible emotional ending, which is totally not convincing, when I watched it half of the audience started to laugh. Don't go and see this movie! It got one of the lowest ratings ever by the audience of the Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival. And not without reason.
