“The Eternal Feminine works as a powerful account of one woman’s struggle against the patriarchal society of 1950s Mexico in the form of her relationship with her husband.” Adam Thornton - The Wee Review

“Beristáin’s treatment of her subject skewed, reducing this multi-faceted, brilliant and emblematic woman to the one-note drama of an early feminist caged in as a wife and mother by a slime ball husband.” Carolina Amoruso - Sounds and Colours
