Synopsis by Mark Deming
This independent drama about rock stars, models and the drugs they share was shown as part of the "American Spectrum" series at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival. Jude (Michael Goorjian) is a rock star whose heroin habit has become too much for his bandmates; while on a European tour, they send him to a detox center in Paris to dry out. Jude escapes from detox faster than you can say "Kurt Cobain" and passes out on a sidestreet, where he's found by Joy (Portia de Rossi), a model who's also addicted to heroin. Joy takes Jude back to her flat, where they hide out from the world (where a reward has been posted for Jude's return) and debate the pros and cons of getting off junk. The Invisibles features a score by former Camper Van Beethoven member Jonathan Segel, who also plays the apparition of John Lennon.
