There’s a ridiculously impressive cast assembled for Craig Roberts second directorial outing Eternal Beauty and so we’re pleased to share news that filming has begun, plus all the info on who’s signed up as the five-week shoot has begun in Cardiff, Newport and Port Talbot in Wales.
Joining the always-excellent lead Sally Hawkins is the also awesome Alice Lowe, alongside Billie Piper, Penelope Wilton, David Thewlis, Bob Pugh, Rob Aramayo, Morfydd Clark and Paul Hilton, who rounds off something very interesting indeed. Here’s a little teaser:
When Jane (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.
As previously mentioned, Eternal Beauty is written and directed by Craig Roberts and also produced by Adrian Bate of Cliff Edge Pictures, with finance from: the BFI (awarding funds from the National Lottery), Ffilm Cymru Wales, Welsh Government and Wellcome.
Producer Bate, of Cliff Edge Pictures, added:
“Eternal Beauty will surprise and delight. It portrays Schizophrenia, a much-misunderstood condition, with dignity, humour and affection. We are so fortunate to have the chance to work with this amazing cast who will inhabit and enhance Craig’s vision and characters. We are very happy to welcome the new cast additions – the brilliant Billie Piper and Penelope Wilton.”
