Synopsis

Jane is a middle-aged woman who suffers from severe schizophrenia, seemingly triggered by being left at the altar on her wedding day during her twenties. Flashbacks also reveal the abusive childhood she endured at the hands of her mother, who constantly dismisses and discourages her in favour of one of Jane’s sisters. In the present day, Jane’s behaviour is often eccentric, erratic and sometimes even dangerous – she gets into a minor car accident with her nephew, for instance, and tells her sister that her husband is having an affair – as well as hearing voices and seeing spiders on the walls. But when a new man enters her life, her family really begin to worry for Jane. Based on director Craig Roberts’ experiences of dealing with schizophrenia in his own family, ‘Eternal Beauty’ is an affectionate and darkly comic exploration of mental illness and the affect it can have.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
