While a lot of romantic films are about blossoming love, the 2004 classic Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, written by Charlie Kaufman and directed by Michel Gondry, looks at Clementine and Joel, a couple that has already broken up.
Oh the agony!
In this Clear Spot Club interview, philosopher Robert Sinnerbrink discusses some of the big themes of heart-break that are explored in the film.

Sinnerbrink also discusses why broken hearts can be so bloody awful and offers a few tips on how to survive one.
