Trivia

America Ferrera was originally cast as Mona Gray, but dropped out and Jessica Alba replaced her. See more »

Goofs

When Alba was in class and put a child in a corner by the door she wrote two large numbers on the black board and wanted the children to tell her what sign (greater or less than) to put between them. When the child made a sound to get her attention you could see the less than sign already written on the board, but it was missing after the child from the corner gave the correct answer and the teacher wrote it on the board.

Ben Smith: Like what? A quadratic equation
Mona Gray: More like a decimal point

Thought-provoking
13 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Definitely worth watching. The best word to describe it is 'interesting'. It seems quite slow sometimes, though never boring, just more character-driven than plot-driven for a large portion of the film

  • although more happens towards the end.




The actors playing the film's central/crucial characters played their roles well, and most had interesting, thought-provoking roles. Sophie Nyweide in particular was excellent as Lisa. To me, the film revolved around her and Mona, played well by Jessica Alba. Their relationship was interesting, especially alongside the film's comments on becoming and being a grown up. Lisa's character alone was one of the main things that kept me hooked when I was watching it; children's roles don't often go that deep in character. That, as well as Mona's views on numbers and any of the final thoughts the film leaves you with, makes An Invisible Sign something new and refreshing.

I didn't leave with a new favourite, but I'm very glad I watched it. It's not the type of film to suit everyone, but I recommend giving it a chance.
