This week we continue our Comedic Actors in Dramatic roles block with 2004’s indie darling Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
This gem sees Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet as Joel and Clementine (no jokes) who have suffered a painful breakup. Joel, heartbroken that Clementine doesn’t recognize him, discovers that she had her memories of him erased. So he decides what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. During the procedure, he decides his memories are precious.
Mark Ruffalo, Elijah Wood, Kirsten Dunst, and David Cross co-star.
How good is this film? How great is Carrey in a noncomedic role? You’ll find out in this Plotaholics Podcast review of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
