About the Movie
Young Mona idolizes her father, a brilliant mathematician. When he suddenly demonstrates signs of mental illness, Mona begins to obsess about numbers, using them to interpret an unpredictable and threatening world. Now an adult (Jessica Alba), Mona's old superstitions and compulsive behaviors continue to flourish, but a new job as an elementary school math teacher (a position she both relishes and dreads), may force her out of her protective shell. With imagination and humor, as well as a special sensitivity to the realities of mental illness, AN INVISIBLE SIGN carries a magic all its own.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Cuter than a basket of puppies licking a litter of kittens, "An Invisible Sign" is an excruciatingly whimsical collision of adult themes and kid-friendly aesthetic.
Rotten: Offhandedly charming, if a bit labored in its eccentricity.
Rotten: Agrelo clumsily attempts to play jaunty larkiness against somber situations.
Rotten: Jessica Alba gets plain-Jane crazy for An Invisible Sign, a syrupy A Beautiful Mind redux.
There has been a sort of trend here in West LA, probably everywhere else too, where somehow it's fashionable to be a geek, or a nerd or a dork. All the cool kids are doing it. All the beautiful, athletic, perfect social butterfly, hip kids are geeking out. Well, they are still being uninteresting shallow fashionable morons, but they look geeky while doing it. I can't wait for it to stop. That's what this movie is. It takes all the right geeky ingredients (animation, math, ocd, social disfunction, family tragedy), and mixes them into a perfectly superficial soup. The only thing more shallow than the characters are the numbers. Wow... that was bad.
The movie is $9.99 because it's not in theaters yet and I really enjoyed it. It's nice to see jessica alba in a different kind of role where she's not playing a sexy femme fatale in skin tight dresses but is instead a math geek...who would have thought she'd pull it off so well.
