“A step up from his directorial debut Just Jim, Craig Roberts’ second feature delivers a clear-eyed, compassionate view of a mental illness often botched by movies: schizophrenia. Anchored around a terrific Sally Hawkins as Jane, a fragile but functioning woman suffering from paranoid episodes, Eternal Beauty allies strong performances with imaginative direction, channelling the likes of Wes Anderson and Michel Gondry to bring Jane’s altered states to life.”
When Jane is dumped at the altar she has a breakdown and spirals into a chaotic world, where love (both real and imagined) and family relationships collide with both touching and humorous consequences.
The reality we see through Jane’s eyes is a different vivid reality, heightened in the film by the stylized palette, camera work and intoxicating score – a reality that the film celebrates is as valid as anybody else’s and treats it with dignity, humour and affection.
