Eternal Beauty (plus Q&A with Writer/Director Craig Roberts)
Jilted as a young woman on her wedding day and beset with anxieties both real and imaginary, June (Sally Hawkins) lives life as a constant struggle. Pills offer a possible solution; her relationship with vagrant musician Mike (David Thewlis) might be another. But does the medication – or even love – simply exacerbate June’s delusional state of mind? Craig Roberts’ bold, humane film depicts the unstable perceptions of June’s fragile mental health with delirious colour and design and ever-shifting time frames; it also boasts a stand-out lead performance by multi-award winner Hawkins (Happy Go Lucky, The Shape of Water).
Filmed on location across South Wales, Eternal Beauty is written and directed by Craig Roberts (Submarine). Join us after the film when the bar will stay open for a special Q&A with Craig.
“Roberts has created a thoughtful, valuable, humane drama…a tonally bold work of enduring charm…Substantial and rewarding”**** The Guardian
