‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’, Michel Gondry (2004)

What a loss to spend that much time with someone, only to find out that she’s a stranger.

“I can’t see anything that I don’t like about you.”

“But you will! But you will. You know, you will think of things. And I’ll get bored with you and feel trapped because that’s what happens with me.”

“Okay.”

“…Okay.”

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) dir. Michel Gondry

“”When I was a kid, I thought I was. I can’t believe I’m crying already. Sometimes I think people don’t understand how lonely it is to be a kid, like you don’t matter. So, I’m eight, and I have these toys, these dolls. My favorite is this ugly girl doll who I call Clementine, and I keep yelling at her, “You can’t be ugly! Be pretty!” It’s weird, like if I can transform her, I would magically change, too.”
