Eternal Beauty (15)
Schizophrenia has rarely been portrayed well on film, and the biggest success of Craig Roberts' latest drama is that it neither demonises nor simplifies its central character’s illness. Eternal Beaut follows Jane, a woman living functionally, if a bit foggily, on state benefits and medication following several hospital stays. Her determination to live with kindness and independence stands in stark contrast to a mean-spirited family – emphasised in flashbacks to her abortive wedding and a heart-breaking beauty pageant. Hawkins captures Jane’s unfailing compassion and perceptiveness and she navigates a world that keeps trying to hem her in.
