“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” a 2004 production featuring comedian Jim Carrey in perhaps his most challenging dramatic role, will be the May 8 entry in the Wayne County Arts Alliance’s Sunday Night Cinemafilm series.
Written by Charlie Kaufman and directed by Michel Gondry, themovie is a romantic fantasy in which Joel Barish, an introverted office worker(Carrey), and his flighty ex-girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet), have theirmemories washed of one another after a nasty breakup. Much of the action takes place in Barish’s mind as he struggles to maintain a glimmer of his love for Clementine as his memory of her is erased. Various sub-plots involve employees of the memory-washing company, played by an all-star cast that includes MarkRuffalo, Kirsten Dunst, Tom Wilkinson and Elijah Wood. The movie is 108 minutes long and rated “R.”
The Sunday Night Cinema’s spring series, entitled “Real or Not: Films of Reality and Illusion,” runs through May 22 and showcases a range of domestic and films that delve into our perception of what is real and what isn’t.
Showings are at 7 p.m. at the Wayne County Visitor’s Center, 32 Commercial Street in Honesdale.  A donation of $5.00 perperson is suggested, to help support the activities of the Arts Alliance. The film will be preceded with a short introduction and followed by adiscussion.
