Friday Family Film Night: ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND review

FRIDAY FAMILY FILM NIGHT

17-02-2024 • 22 mins

In which the Mister and Monsters join me in reviewing ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (2004), which we caught on the TCM app but you can buy/rent from several platforms.  Written by Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry and Pierre Bismuth and winner of the 2005 Original Screenplay Oscar, this film is directed by Michel Gondry.  The story follows Joel (Jim Carrey), a painfully shy man who meets a free spirited young woman named Clementine (Best Actress Nominee, Kate Winslet).  They fall in love but eventually their relationship withers and dies.  Clem decides to have Joel completely erased from her memory and when he finds out he opts to do the same out of hurt and spite.  In the process, he realizes the error and tries to come up with a way to stop it but it might just be too late.  A powerful script with brilliant acting and sublime directing by Gondry make this a MUST WATCH.  The film clocks in at 1 h and 48 m and is rated R.  Please note there are SPOILERS in this review.
