How are Fans Reacting to Confessions of an Invisible Girl?
The heartfelt cliche teenager drama is all about the challenges a teenager faces, along with sensitive issues like self-love and bullying. The movie is easily resonated with, specifically by youngsters. It covers the issues that one has to go through during that age period and offers humor easily understood. But the basic storyline reminds us of movies like ‘The Duff’ and doesn’t offer anything new in that perspective.
The same old teenage story where a geeky girl struggles to fit into the societal norms of the school loves a guy who seems way beyond her reach. Still, a sudden makeover makes him fall for her, and yes, the famous blonde girl of the school who leaves no chance to insult the former is not something viewers vouch for anymore.
But the role of lead Tete played by Klara Castanho has been appreciated by the audience as she portrayed a headstrong girl to face challenges irrespective of her circumstances at home and school. All in all, it can be a good watch for refreshing some teenage romance with a feel-good factor to it.
