In a Nutshell:
Jim Carrey tries to get over Kate Winslet by erasing her from his mind, literally.
You can erase someone from your mind. Getting them out of your heart is another story.
'Too many guys think I'm a concept, or I complete them, or I'm gonna make them alive. But I'm just a fucked-up girl who's lookin' for my own peace of mind; don't assign me yours.'
'He's seducing my girlfriend with MY words and MY things. He stole a pair of her underwear! Jesus Christ, he stole her underwear.'
'My God, there's people coming out of your butt.'
Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) - insecure, emotionally withdrawn, geeky and sweet, meets Clementine (Kate Winslet) with her sassy nature and dyed hair.
They hit it off and Joel falls in love, but is confused when one day his feisty fruitcake doesn’t recognise him at all.
He discovers that she has had all memories of him erased by a company called Lacuna Inc.
Naturally a little miffed, Joel decides to do the same.
As Joel’s memories slowly are erased by the company in reverse, from the last time he saw Clementine to his first memory of her, he realises that even if he can’t be with her, he doesn’t want to forget her.
Soon he finds himself fighting against his own mind to keep hold of his time with her.
Can Joel resist Lacuna’s probing and return to normal life with his memories of Clementine intact?
And even if he does, will he ever be able to get over her... or want to?
