ETERNAL BEAUTY MOVIE REVIEW
Living with schizophrenia is no easy task for Jane (Sally Hawkins), especially when she’s surrounded by a very emotionally unstable family, where it seems only half of them seem to want the best for her. After a recent bad spiral over her illness, Jane finds solace in a new source of love and life with Mike (David Thewlis). Written and directed by Craig Roberts, Eternal Beauty also stars Billie Piper, Alice Lowe, and Penelope Wilton. Discussing this lowkey look into the mind of someone who lives and struggles with mental illness is our esteemed board of therapists Bradley, Harmoni, Tessa, and Jordan.
**There is a longer, uncut, video version of the review for TIME LORD subscribers and above right here.**

Harmoni Anderson (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews, Unstabletop Gaming)
Harmoni is a mermaid-haired, millennial, rum drinking, Section 31, Slytherin (who’s divorced J.K. Rowling) preschool/nursery teacher and multi genre geek who also loves all things film, tv, fashion, makeup, and an embarrassingly huge BTS stan. Like really embarrassing. As in, mention them and then sit back and watch the insanity. Harmoni likes being able to game and talk movies/TV with people that aren’t 3 feet tall or all that demanding of her. Plus she can curse at us and not get fired….so bonus!
Jordan Cobb (Screener Squad)
Born with a comic book in one hand, a camera in the other, and in front of the television as WrestleMania played out, Jordan Worth Cobb was thus birthed into this crazy world. A Digital Filmmaking major from the University of Central Arkansas, Jordan has done it all in film from directing, writing, editing, and producing in addition to skills involved in film and TV criticism, journalism, and years of podcasting experience. On any given day, her ADHD riddled brain bounces focus from film to pro wrestling to TV to superheroes to noir to video games to espionage and yes, even to sports. She played little league you know. For more of this eccentric nerd, you can follow her on Twitter here and read her original writings on Deepest Corners of My Notebook.
Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)
Born in the desolate wastelands of America. Bradly Martin grew up surrounded by film, pop culture, video games, and comics. Finding it best to relate to people by discussing what they love best, Bradly became well versed in Doctor Who, Dre, and Jay, Star Wars and Trek, comics both Marvel, DC, and independents, and many other fan-favorite things from niche to obscure. After falling madly in love as an adult, the pinball wizard was exiled to the true north of Canada. One fateful day, Justin Zarian of oneofus.net sent the call out for contributors. A call that Bradly would answer with an enthusiastic “okay.” Bradly contributes to shows such as the Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub, and honestly whatever is available to volunteer for as tribute.
Tessa Morrison (Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad, Unstabletop Gamers)
Well-rounded nerd and artist, Tessa Morrison grew up in the misty mountains of West Virginia and was constantly ridiculed for being a “weirdo.” Then moved to Austin in 2009 where people said the same thing, but in an endearing tone. Tessa works an office day job, creates puppets and fiber art, cosplays, models for gaming and animation studios, and volunteers for various organizations. One of which is the Other Worlds Film Festival, Austin’s first SciFi film fest, working in the capacity of Outreach Director and programmer. Another is local DIY-comedy-wrestling league, Party World Rasslin’, where Tessa scrambles around stage-handing and doing art department nonsense. Wrote and contributed to website and magazine Strange Kids Club for five years reviewing films, video games, and Halloween candy. Co-hosted a Public Access show called Ladies of Fandom. Previously guested on podcasts Blood Over Texas, Threequel Club, Trash in the Can, Retro Movie Roundtable, and Nerds with Mics.
