Elisabeth Moss is believed to play the role of Cecilia who is experiencing paranoia and anxiety disorder due to years of torture by her lover. Every look in her eyes and body language is so animating that it makes the audience sympathetic. Aldis Hodge, cast of James, Cecilia’s best friend who works as a policeman also left a deep impression in the minds of the audience. While Storm Reid’s acting as Sydney, James’s daughter was also successful in grabbing attention despite its small portion.
Not to forget also the play of Michael Dorman who became the antagonist. He was Very good at making the emotions of the audience overflowing. With some helps from his younger brother, Emily, and their best friend, James; Cecilia also managed to hide from the pursuit of Adrian. However, she was so paranoid due to Adrian’s treatment of her all this time.
Until then, news emerged that Adrian had died and handed over his inheritance to Cecilia. Despite being relieved, slowly but surely Cecilia’s life began to fall apart due to the terror of something invisible.
The Invisible Man worked on by Insidious director: Chapter 3 (2015), Leigh Whannell. He is also a horror film writer who has spawned a masterpiece like Saw with James Wan. No wonder if the aura of horror and tension from The Invisible Man can be executed properly. In addition to a solid plot, the film is also peppered with effective and not excessive jump scares. It’s perfect for connoisseurs of the horror or thriller genre.
One by one the people Cecilia loved moved away from her. She was sure there was something that continued to observe all her movements. What really happened? Is Adrian really ‘back’ to haunt Cecilia? Or is she just mentally ill? The story, inspired by the novel by H. G. Wells and rewritten by Whannell, seems to satirize our society who still underestimates the victims of violence against women. For example, when she asked for help, no one believed Cecilia.
Some figures also seem to underestimate the domestic violence they have been experiencing. When the perpetrators of violence are rich men with high positions, while the victims are ordinary women, discrimination like this is ironically still very common in the real world.
