the eternal sunshine of MY spotless mind
If the title of this entry seems familiar to some of you it is because it was inspired by the move of the same title starring Jim Carrey & Kate Winslet. Now, if your not familiar with the film or even haven't seen it I suggest that you do simply because it has a beautiful story that we all can relate to but if you don't feel like seeing it for yourself I'll give you a a synopsis of the film.
Jim Carrey's character is this simple guy, very conservative, prefers to keep to himself, he isn't outgoing etc. He goes to this beach party with his best friend and his wife where he meets Kate Winslte's character. Her character is the complete opposite of Jim Carrey's character and like the old saying goes opposites attract. At first, Jim is very hesitant to persue anything with kate but he then descides to take the risk of getting to know this person. Eventually they fall in love and live together. At first everything goes smoothly yet like all good things it eventually came to an end. They fight and argue to the point that they dislike each other completely. A year goes by and when Valentine's Day comes around Jim's character descides to do something special for kate's character but when he comes by her work place she acts diffrently. She doesn't know him and it confuses Jim. He thought it was just an act until his best friend tell him that she wasn't acting but rather she gtot a procedure that erases ones memories. Jim then descides to go through the same procedure to be able to go on with his life. As he was going through the procedure he then realized that he didn't want his memories erased. He then tries so hard to hold on to the memories that they have but fail. He then wakes up from the procedure without any memory of Kate and the love they had. But fate had a diffrent plan.
I'll leave my story up to there simply because you just have to watch the movie to find out what happened to them. What i love about the movie are two things:
1. The experiences we had and the mistakes we've made really teach us and make us better people. It is what defines us as human beings and it is what makes us stronger.
2. The fact that if the two of you are meant to be together fate will always bring you back no matter what.
So there, I do hope that you get to watch the film and love it as much as I do.
