Keeping the Faith

The Invisible Circus remains loyal to the author's limited but earnest vision

You say you want a revolution: Phoebe (Jordana Brewster) must retrace her dead sister's radical steps to save her own soul.

You say you want a revolution: Phoebe (Jordana Brewster) must retrace her dead sister's radical steps to save her own soul.

Whether this level of emotional honesty is a fluke for Diaz -- whose turn as the capricious, self-absorbed Faith brims with authenticity -- remains to be seen, but one way or the other, she makes a fine ghost. Eccleston in turn comes across as pallid and mostly unpretentious. Of course, it's Brewster's movie, and this is a quantum leap forward from her work in The Faculty. It's as if every morning before her call, she reviewed these lines from Egan's book: "Gazing into the camera, smiling at whoever was behind it -- the memory was as lost to her as if she'd never been there. Pictures are sad, Phoebe thought. Pictures are always sad."
