A first official look at Actress Sally Hawkins in Eternal Beauty, the upcoming drama comedy movie written and directed by Craig Roberts:
“When June (Sally Hawkins) is rejected by life, she spirals into a chaotic, schizophrenic world, where love and normality colldie with humorous consequences.
June, aged 17, is on track for small-town greatness – happily engaged to her heart-throb boyfriend Johnny (Robert Aramayo) and with a promising career as a model on the horizon. Then one day, her world comes crashing down when she loses a coveted beauty contest and discovers that Johnny has been having an affair with her best friend behind her back. The news causes June to suffer a breakdown and years of hospitalization and intense therapy follow. Twenty years later, June is still waging a hard-fought battle against schizophrenia, receiving little support from family, too wrapped up in their own lives to fully notice. Her only solace comes from conversations with an unseen lover, who encourages her to skip her medication with unpredictable consequences. Amidst the growing unrest in her life June meets Mike (David Thewlis), a failed musician and fellow lost soul, stumbling through life with bipolar disorder. What follows is a sensitive and darkly comic romance, as June attempts to keep her condition in check, while her family overcome their selfish hang ups to see her for who she really is and support her.”
Besides Sally Hawkins, the cast also includes David Thewlis, Alice Lowe, Billie Piper, Penelope Wilton, Robert Pugh, Robert Aramayo, Morfydd Clark, Banita Sandhu, Paul Hilton, Rita Bernard-Shaw, Elysia Welch, Kas Meghani, and Natalie O’Neill.
The film has yet to get an official release date.
