Sadness is as good as happiness. Embrace it.

Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

In the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Jim Carrey plays the role of Joel, a troubled man filled with grief over a woman he can barely remember. He tries to remember her, but his memories are quickly fading. Joel, and many others in his community, had a medical procedure done to erase the memories of loved ones, including former pets.
