Occasionally there comes along a film with a truly original plot, proving there is something new to be seen at the movies. Part rom-com and part sci-fi, Spotless Mind succeeds conceptually, visually, and emotionally. Imagine a future in which the pain of unrequited love can be selectively erased from recall, rendering past hurt nothing more than a shadowy memory. Would you do it? Are even our most painfully bitter breakups somehow essential to our sense of identity? This instant cult classic artfully manages a non-linear storyline that is essential to the love story of Clementine (played with charming quirkiness by Kate Winslet) and Joel (Jim Carey, in a serious role that suits him perfectly). Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion.
