“Random thoughts for Valentine’s Day, 2004…. Today is a holiday invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap.”
Featuring the uniquely imaginative and whimsical visual aesthetic of director Michel Gondry, a story from the genius mind of Charlie Kaufman (BEING JOHN MALKOVICH), and career-high performances from Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet as a couple whose relationship is disappearing before them, ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND holds a special place as one of cinema’s most unusual romance (or anti-romance?) films. The film is cinematic poetry that walks a magical and heartfelt line between hilarity and heartbreak in a dimension all its own. Also starring Tom Wilkinson, Mark Ruffalo, Kirsten Dunst, Elijah Wood and David Cross.
