Live Read: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
March 4, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$50
Clementine Kruczynski and Joel Barish meet on a train. An almost ordinary meet-cute in a most unordinary movie, Clementine and Joel will soon realize that they have met before. And, well… it’s complicated. Sixteen years ago, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind made its way into theatres and viciously carved its way into our hearts exploring the painful manner in which relationships linger in our memories. On Wednesday, March 4, Film Independent Presents… Live Read: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, will seep into your mind just as Lacuna technicians work to erase the bitter memories of Clementine and Joel’s messy relationship.
Guest director Brett Haley (Hearts Beat Loud, The Hero, All the Bright Places) joins the Film Independent Live Read family of directors and will bring Charlie Kaufman’s visceral screenplay to life with a new cast of actors performing these iconic roles live at the Directors Guild of America Theater; including the talented Tessa Thompson, Adam Scott, Kiersey Clemons, Kelly Marie Tran, Bridget Regan and more. Plus, a special musical performance by Miya Folick.
Winner of the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is the perfect script to experience live, letting Kaufman’s complex dialogue reverberate through the room. Those who have been to a Live Read before are aware how special it is to have a remarkable script read in a new and exciting way. As these events are one night only, and never filmed, you too might leave the theater sounding like Joel Barish, pleading “please, let me keep this memory, just this one.”
