Eternal Beauty

British actors Sally Hawkins, David Thewlis, Billie Piper and Saint Maud’s Morfydd Clark make for a ferociously-good ensemble under the astute direction of Welsh actor-turned-filmmaker Craig Roberts. With formal ingenuity and emotional intensity Roberts has crafted a unique composition of what schizophrenia might feel like.
