This was a pleasant surprise! The Invisible Man follows Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss), who receives the tragic news of her abusive ex-boyfriend’s suicide. After a series of coincidences, Cecilia notices that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see and begins to suspect it may just be her deceased lover. 

This 2020 film is a film which is brilliantly directed and written by Leigh Whannell. Leigh manages to surprise viewers with shocking twists and turns while still maintaining the film’s tone. 

The Invisible Man is a hard film to pull off, but thankfully Elisabeth Moss manages to make it believable. Her intentions and actions were excellently portrayed by Moss, making this her best performance up to this day.
