Eternal Sunshine

Watched an interesting movie a couple of nights ago. With a science fiction flair the film explores a relationship between two people who are dysfunctional at best. Within the film you get a sense that relationships can be tumultuous, yet loving and fulfilling in their own way. I suppose all relationships, at least the ones that matter, take work and acceptance of what is brought to the table. We are all so horribly and beautifully imperfect. This movie does a nice job of depicting this.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say:
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Emotionally withdrawn Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) and dysfunctional free spirit Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winslet) strike up a relationship on a Long Island Rail Road train from Montauk. They are inexplicably drawn to each other, despite their radically different personalities."

I love that movie! I saw it in the theatre when it came out. (I think with an ex-bf, ironically... the one who got away... the one I regret dumping... oh well, he's married now.)

Erin - I love the line "we are all so horribly and beautifully imperfect". the question, as you indicate, is how we live with that loving, forgiving awareness of ourselves and others. i haven't seen the film but will check it out. jean
