Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is the story of Joel and Clementine, played by Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet. The two very different individuals fall in love despite their polar opposite personalities. Soon the two grew apart and they break off their relationship. Clementine doesn’t want to think about Joel anymore, so she undergoes a procedure to erase him from her memory. When Joel learns of this he is so upset that he undergoes the same procedure. As he sleeps and the memories fade away, he realizes he still loves her and tries desperately to stop the process.
Recommendation: Kate Winslet gives another stellar performance, as we are accustomed to. What I love about this film is the completely original story, and the way that Carrey ad Winslet bring it all together. There are also some cool twists that really made this one enjoyable for me.
