Starring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet in an extraordinary story of love and regret from director Spike Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman, ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (2004) was recognized in the year of its release with an AFI AWARD, naming it among the most outstanding motion pictures of year. According to the official rationale, “ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND is an unforgettable love story. Daringly original and heartwarmingly romantic, this film is as challenging and rewarding as love itself. There is no more inventive screenwriter today than Charlie Kaufman, who helps us remember that film is a medium with boundless storytelling possibilities. Jim Carrey’s indelible performance is the central force in the film, while Kate Winslet continues to astound with her every look, her every smile. To see the film twice is to enrich your love for it ten-fold.”
