Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

"How happy is the blameless vestal's lot! / The world forgetting, by the world forgot / Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! / Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd. "

Would you erase the memory of a past relationship if you had your heart broken? Based on an absurd premise but grounded in real emotion, Eternal Sunshine the Spotless Mind is about a man who wishes to erase ex-girlfriend from memory after he finds out she erased first. Life is always that easy, as Joel discovers: he erasing Clementine from his memory, he's also erasing some the best parts of his life. Joel starts to fight the memory erasing in desperate effort to protect what he's discovered he loves most about life .... Clementine. A beautifully structured film, which has
the story going both backwards and forwards, that always reminds us how precious our memories truly are. Jim Carry breaks free his traditional role, and goes ultra-unfunny. And he does this brilliantly. Winslet and Carrey’s career-best performances make the characters magnetic and you pray that they together at the film’s end. Not only is this the best romance this decade, it's also one of the best films of the decade. Laughs, heartache, suspense follow in this smart, warm unique rom-com. If you take a moment and really open your mind, the brilliance of this film will definitely shine through.
