Quotes

Melody: Mum?
Bronwyn: Hmm?
Melody: Do you think that this life, our existence... do you think it's an accident? Or do you think it's planned for a reason?
Bronwyn: Oh, um. Oh, I think...
Melody: ...and try and ignore religion.
Bronwyn: Ignore religion. Um. Well, I think it's like gymnastics. I think that life was inevitable. I mean however it was created, whatever happened, you know? Whoever did it. I mean you look at the stars and your see infinity. You look into a microscope and you see infinity. Smack bang in the middle, between those two ...

Difference is a good thing, executed beautifully
21 March 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The film centres around the title character Griff, a socially anxious young man who spends his days working a mundane office job. Unfortunately his shy nature makes him an easy target for a co-worker to bully Griff on a daily basis. At night, Griff assumes the identity of "Griff the Protector", sworn protector of the neighbourhood. His well-intentioned and concerned older brother sees this behaviour as abnormal (no really, he does) and is at a loss of how to help him. His brother's girlfriend finds Griff's behaviour attractive.

This is a movie that appeals to the strange nature in all of us that we all keep bottled up inside, hidden from the outside world. The two central characters are almost caricatures of what it is to be strange and different given their loose grip on reality, yet they still manage to be believable, which is a testament to the sharp and consistent writing and the amazing performances by Ryan Kwanten (Griff) and Maeve Dermody (Melody) to portray them.

At its core, Griff the Invisible is a love story. Nothing is more endearing than watching these two innocent and strange beings find each other and connect in all their strangeness. Together they create their own vivid reality, which I think the kid in all of us wishes we could be a part of.
