Invisible Circus | Chicago Reader

Invisible Circus

Armed with postcards from European cities her older sister had visited before reportedly committing suicide in 1971, a young San Francisco woman (Jordana Brewster) follows the same itinerary six years later to find out what happened. In flashbacks, the older sister (Cameron Diaz) represents the ideas and illusions of the time. That she's become iconic even in the eyes of her younger sister may excuse the mouthfuls of cliche Diaz delivers. And the movie's archness about how her past could be known to anyone except the dead woman isn't exactly cheating; writer-director Adam Brook is just protecting the source. Based on a novel by Jennifer Egan; with Christopher Eccleston and Blythe Danner. 98 min.
