Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
In the aftermath of a breakup, it's easy to toss out the CDs, sweatshirts and trinkets of your former love. But if you think it's possible to completely erase an ex from your life, think again.

In Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Joel (Jim Carrey) hires a company to erase every memory of his ex Clementine (Kate Winslet) after he discovers she had the procedure done first. As his memories disappear one by one, Joel struggles to hold on to good times. As his last memory is wiped, the Clementine in his mind says, "Meet me in Montauk."

Days later, Joel finds himself on the train to Montauk and inexplicably drawn to a woman. Her name is Clementine. As they rekindle their relationship without memory of their past, these star-crossed lovers prove it's impossible to forget someone who's stirred your soul.
