Bankside Films have today revealed a first look image of BAFTA Winner / Academy Award® Nominee Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water, Paddington, Submarine, Happy-Go-Lucky) in writer/director Craig Roberts' Eternal Beauty.

Hawkins stars alongside Alice Lowe (Prevenge, Adult Life Skills, Sightseers), Golden Globe nominee David Thewlis (Wonder Woman, The Theory of Everything, Harry Potter), BAFTA nominee Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Mansfield Park) and Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel). Bankside Films have international sales rights to the film and will be treating buyers to an exclusive promo during the European Film Market in Berlin.

Eternal Beauty follows Roberts’ 2015 feature directorial debut Just Jim, which was nominated for a BAFTA Cymru award, and the first for his production company banner, Cliff Edge Pictures. When June is rejected by life, she spirals into a chaotic, schizophrenic world, where love and normality collide often with humorous consequences.

Roberts is also set to star in the forthcoming Tolkien biography, and has numerous acting credits which include Kill Your Friends, 22 Jump Street, Submarine and Amazon’s Red Oaks.
