Eternal Beauty review

Sally Hawkins provides a masterclass in generating tears and laughter, occasionally in the space of a single scene.

Eternal Beauty is a pleasingly strange and inventive comedy drama.

Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 1st October 2020

Eternal Beauty review

A scattershot endurance test.

Eternal Beauty review

Sally Hawkins's enthralling performance doesn't rely on the same old tropes - it stays truthful to psychological reality.

Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent, 1st October 2020

Eternal Beauty review

Craig Roberts' oddball comedy ambitiously tries to portray mental illness from the inside out, but despite a fine cast, it doesn't hold together.

Guy Lodge, Variety, 30th September 2020

Eternal Beauty review

Directors dealing with mental illness can often make you wince, treating it as an invitation to all manner of visual hammery. Still in his twenties, Roberts is seasoned enough not to follow suit.

Danny Leigh, The Financial Times, 30th September 2020

Eternal Beauty review

Story-wise, there's not a huge amount going on here, but the film soars in its consistently imaginative take on the way Jane views the world and the sense of solidarity it fosters.
