Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, a 2004 film starring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet, is the story of two lovers that forget each other intentionally only to find one another again. In order to get over Joel (Jim Carrey), Clementine (Kate Winslet) has a process done to erase her memories of their relationship. Heartbroken to hear this, Joel decides to also have this process done so that he will not remember either. However, once he begins this process, he realizes that he does not want to forget Clementine at all and instead wants to protect his memories of her. Joel's memories begin to disappear, but some pieces remain. He realizes he still loves her, but he may be too late to recover from his mistake. But if they are truly soul mates though, perhaps they will find each other again even without having their past intact.
