Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is arguably Michel Gondry’s most famous film. Soft-spoken Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) and unrestrained free spirit Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winselt) erase each other from their memories after a painful break up and meet again on a train to Montauk, New York.
While they believe to be total strangers, the truth eventually surfaces, bringing a myriad of complex emotions into their relationship. The plot bounces between the present and past, toying with the concepts of memory and romantic love.
With elements of a psychological thriller and a nonlinear narrative, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind plunges the audience into a whirlwind of passion and pain as Joel and Clementine determine their fate for a second time.
