Brave, empathetic study of schizophrenia - Eternal Beauty review by PD

Spoiler Alert
02/12/2020

This brave, meticulously crafted piece is for the most part very successful at giving us an empathetic portrayal of schizophrenia. Most films about mental illness tend to use “normal” characters to provide an outside perspective on the subject’s illness, but instead Roberts lets Jane herself (superbly played by Sally Hawkins) be our guide, which has the result we are unable to differentiate between reality and delusion since she herself cannot do the same.

There's some dark humour en route, notably a Christmas present-giving scene involving thoroughly bemused relations, but on the whole it's a heartbreaking film, for Roberts doesn't attempt to shy away from the fact that Jane is a lost soul, trapped inside a mind walled off into sections between her present and past self / selves.

Sometimes the script isn't quite strong enough to cope with the sheer complexity of what's being shown, and the sections involving Jane's relationship with fellow psychiatric patient Mike are a bit awkward, but generally speaking this is strong stuff, and is all the better for not giving us a neat and tiny narrative arc or any sort of cathartic conclusion.

Quirky and well acted - Eternal Beauty review by TH

Spoiler Alert
06/12/2020

First thing this is really well low budget film. The script is decent and the subject matter dealt with in a very quirky way. The acting from Sally Hawkins is fantastic and makes you really feel for her.

The reason for giving this 2 stars is for me the film isnt a film I would choose to watch again. The story is quite quirky and nothing stands out.

So overall it's a well made and decently acted film but not sure I would say an instant classic.
