Diff is Griff, an Aussie flick that is funny, romantic and DIFFERENT, 22 October 2013
Author: Amy Adler from Toledo, Ohio

Griff (Ryan Kwanten) is a doormat at his place of employment. One co-worker in particular bullies him and piles a great deal of his work onto Griff. But, at night, Griff gets some revenge. This affable but quiet young adult man dresses up in a homemade superhero costume and chases the bad guys away from his immediate neighborhood. Very clever, Griff has hooked up a viewing system to see crimes outside his building and, when needed, he swoops in. You'd have to think that the perps are surprised at his actions but they usually stop and run. Of course, this does not really sit well with the local police force. In fact, they hang posters up looking for the loner hero. Even Griff's handsome brother Tim comes to live in the same town, to keep an eye on his odd sibling. One day, Tim happens to meet a lovely lady, Melody (Maeve Dermody) and, after one date, he tells Griff that she is THE ONE. Yet, Maeve is not certain, being a bit unusual herself and still living at home. Lo and behold, when Tim brings Melody to Griff's apartment for a how-do-you-do, Melody almost instantly prefers Griff, making for big problems ahead. Never having head a real romance, will Griff respond to Melody's charms, and, hurt his own brother? Will G give up his superhero acts? This is quite an unusual film from Australia but rather enjoyable for those who like things a bit different. The viewer doesn't truly understand how, even with a costume, Griff stops crime or that when he claims to be invisible, he is still in plain sight. Yet, it doesn't matter. No one in the States will recognize the actors at this point but they are all fine. Sets, costumes, a winning script and an amusing direction make this a fun little indie. If you can see from this description that it might suit you, go get Griff.
