MEMORY ON FILM: ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND

Director: MICHEL GONDRY

108 mins, USA, 2004, Blu-ray


This film screened on Sunday 26th May 2019.

The compulsion to hold onto memories of loves lost, however painful, is explored in Michel Gondry’s endlessly imaginative and influential collaboration with Charlie Kaufman, who won the Oscar for his screenplay. When heartbroken Joel (Jim Carrey) learns that newly ex-girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet) has had him expunged from memory via a service offered by boffins (Tom Wilkinson and Mark Ruffalo) at medical outfit Lacuna, he endeavours to do likewise. Realising too late that the process will eradicate the good memories along with the bad, he makes a desperate bid to hide Clementine deep in his subconscious where she cannot be erased.

Screening as part of our Memory on Film season, May 11th to 29th 2019.
