Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (15)

Outdoor Cinema 2024

This inventive, brilliantly observed and painfully bittersweet romance from writer Charlie Kaufman explores an age-old question through the limitless possibilities of science fiction

Joel (Jim Carrey) and Clementine (Kate Winslet) were a couple, until Clementine erased Joel from her memory, causing a heartbroken Joel to have the same procedure, involving his memories of Clementine being deleted one by one, starting with the most recent. As the audience enter Joel’s brain and experience their relationship, we’re prompted to ask the eternal question; is it better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all?

Carey and Winslet are on superb form, with stellar support from Elijah Wood, Tom Wilkinson, Kirsten Dunst and Mark Ruffalo. Full of beautiful and imaginative visuals that will look stunning on our giant outdoor screen, the film is a surreal and uncanny way to explore the joy and the pain of what it means to be human. Best experienced with 650 of your closest friends, on our iconic Barbican Sculpture Court.
