TT Cinema: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Screening
We cap off February’s lovesick screening line-up with Michael Gondry and Charlie Kaufman’s critically-acclaimed dystopian romantic drama, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Jim Carrey stars as Joel Barish, a man who is informed that his ex-girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet) has had her memories of their relationship erased from her brain via an experimental procedure performed by Dr. Mierzwiak (Tom Wilkinson).
Not to be outdone, Joel decides to have the same procedure done to himself. As Mierzwiak’s bumbling underlings Stan (Mark Ruffalo) and Patrick (Elijah Wood) perform the operation on Joel – over the course of an evening, in his apartment – Joel struggles in his own mind to save the memories of Clementine from being deleted.
The film stylishly uses elements of the psychological thriller and a nonlinear narrative to explore the nature of memory and romantic love. It was released in March 2004 to wide critical acclaim, and grossed over $70 million worldwide. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, and Winslet received a nomination for Academy Award for Best Actress.
Since its release, it has developed a cult following – thanks in no small part to its smart, imaginative script and Michel Gondry’s equally daring directorial touch – and has come to be regarded by many as one of the best films of the 21st century.
