“What kind of kid creates an invisible IF?”



Bea (Cailey Fleming, The Walking Dead) is going through a tough time in her life when she suddenly discovers a strange superpower: she can see everyone’s imaginary friends. Not only that, but she also learns that her neighbour Cal (Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool) can see them too. These imaginary friends – IFs – in all their wildly inventive shapes and sizes and guises, get pretty lost when they’re left behind by their real-life friends as they grow up, resorting to endless group therapy sessions. Bea can’t stand by without doing something, so she enlists a reluctant Cal to help her reconnect forgotten IFs with their kids.

Why You Should See This Film

Writer-director John Krasinski is proving himself to be quite the all-rounder. After winning hearts as Jim Halpert in The Office, then shooting to directing superstardom with the breakout sci-fi horror hit A Quiet Place (2018), now he turns his skills to this family-friendly adventure that star Ryan Reynolds describes as “a live-action Pixar film”. Krasinki’s former Office co-star Steve Carell provides the voice of big, fuzzy IF Blue, and other voice cast-members include Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Emily Blunt (The Fall Guy), Matt Damon, George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Maya Rudolph, Jon Stewart, Awkwafina, and just about everyone else in Hollywood. Legendary cinematographer and regular Spielberg collaborator, Janusz Kamiński brings his eye for capturing magic and wonder to the lensing of the film.
