Sally Hawkins Plays a Schizophrenic Falling in Love In ‘Eternal Beauty’
Sally Hawkins blew everyone away in her legendary performance in The Shape of Water in 2018. Though, she’s not stopping there. Hawkins is now starring in a new moving Eternal Beauty where she plays a schizophrenic patient. And it’s a love story! Yep, our girl is aiming for another Oscar nomination here.
So, What do we Know About Eternal Beauty?
The movie will entail the story of a schizophrenic woman named Jane (Sally Hawkins) whose mental health struggles take a substantial toll in her personal life. Apart from that, she’s struggled with love and relationships, both romantic and familial, real and imagined. Though, after 20 years of dealing with it all, she meets Mike (David Thewlis) and finds love again. Mike is a failed musician and a lost soul just like Jane. Their pain and loneliness are what ends up connecting them. The movie is going to be full of raw emotion but it will also have its comedic elements. You can check out the first look of Sally Hawkins in the movie here.
We haven’t seen schizophrenia being portrayed in the screens in such a light. So, it’s definitely going to be worth the watch. Along with Hawkins and Thewlis, we will see Billie Piper, Penelope Wilton, Alice Lowe, Robert Pugh, Banita Sandhu, Robert Aramayu, Ashley McGuire, Rita Bernard-Shaw and Elysia Welch.The UK release date for Eternal Beauty is 8 October 2019.
Craig Roberts Serves as Director
Craig Roberts is the director and writer for the movie. Roberts was previously known as just an up and coming actor in Hollywood known for his roles in Submarine and The Fundamentals of Caring. Now, he’s fully taking on the role of director and screenwriter. Previously, Roberts has only directed Just Jim. Just Jim did not gain much popularity but Eternal Beauty surely will owing to the star-studded cast such as Sally Hawkins.
