Stories about schizophrenia are tough to tell. Oftentimes, people have misconceptions about schizophrenia since it is a mental illness many cannot relate with.

With Eternal Beauty, writer/director Craig Roberts tells a beautiful story about a woman who struggles with her schizophrenia.

The movie stars Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water, Blue Jasmine), David Thewlis (Wonder Woman, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2), Billie Piper (Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Doctor Who), Morfydd Clark (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Crawl), Penelope Wilton (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Robert Pugh (Master and the Commander: The Far Side of the World), and Alice Lowe (Hot Fuzz). Craig Roberts directed and wrote the screenplay.

Here’s the synopsis of the film:

When Jane (Sally Hawkins) is dumped at the altar, she has a breakdown and spirals into a chaotic world, where love (both real and imagined) and family relationships collide with both touching and humorous consequences.
