The offbeat, genre-defying antics of Charlie Kaufman have made him a rare beast in an increasingly risk-averse industry with a reputation for safe bets and reliable franchise fare. And yet, for all his complexity and offbeat ideas, his best work remains immediately accessible for one simple reason: authentic, relatable emotion.

The plot itself teeters on the absurd, with Joel Jim Carrey undergoing a controversial medical procedure to erase all memories of his ex-girlfriend Clementine Kate Winslet after discovering that she has done the same to him. Structurally, the film is a labyrinth on par with The Matrix or Inception , following Joel from memory to memory as he relives his relationship with Clementine before eventually regretting his decision to forget her. And yet for all its complexity, Eternal Sunshine is never hard to follow.

The reason? For an example of this in action, check out our latest script-to-screen breakdown, which features a scene plucked from near the end of the film:. Having forgotten each other entirely and subsequently reconnected, Joel and Clementine choose to begin a new relationship — even after learning the truth about their prior history. But while the situation driving the scene is strange, complex, and technically impossible, it offers an emotionally intriguing what-if scenario that is bound to resonate with anyone that has ever been in a relationship with another human being.

What would happen if we could choose to forget entirely about someone, only to meet them anew down the road? Would we connect in the same way? Would we make the same mistakes? Would the relationship be doomed from the start once more? Like all great science fiction, Kaufman smartly chooses not to answer these questions. Instead, he opts to leave us with a hypothetical scenario that inspires reflection on an emotional level.
