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 his mother yet. Annie Newton has a problem with Pete, who owes her money. 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

When the researcher looks through Nicks room the day after the party, a copy of the book Catch-22 is seen on the bookshelf. The whole movie plot is about a Catch-22. See more »
When Annie is pushing back the sewer lid to find Nick's body, the "spirit" Nick is the one who ends up pushing the sewer lid the rest of the way open, even though he doesn't physically exist. 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.

THE INVISIBLE is one of those movies which will leave the audience divided. There is no question about it, the movie has its flaws. The story could be more elaborate and the dialog and acting better. Still "The Invisible" will stay in the back of your mind.
The strengths of the movie is its perfectly executed soundtrack, how it portraits family relations and the interesting characters of "Nick" played by Justing Chatwin and "Annie" played by Margarita Levieva.
If you're looking for a action packed thriller/drama then this is not a movie for you. If you're looking for a beautiful portrait of what people are capable of in their darkest hour, set to a soundtrack that will give you goosebumps, then watch this movie.
