‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’: How to Watch the Movie That Inspired Ariana Grande’s New Album Online

All products and services featured are independently chosen by editors. However, Billboard may receive a commission on orders placed through its retail links, and the retailer may receive certain auditable data for accounting purposes.

Ariana Grande is blessing Arianators with a seventh studio album titled Eternal Sunshine, which from the teasers the “Yes, And?” singer has been posting on Instagram, takes inspiration from the 2004 movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. This isn’t the first time that Grande has used her favorite movies as themes for albums of course — she famously paid homage to Mean Girls in the video to 2019’s Thank U, Next.

As for Eternal Sunshine (the film) and Grande, the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper recently posted photos of herself dressed exactly like the film’s character Clementine, played by Kate Winslet, while holding up vinyls of Eternal Sunshine (the album). The most obvious callout to the film is in her teaser video announcement for the single “We Can’t Be Friends,” which shows Grande in a waiting room while going over a consent form that is just like the one from the movie.

What Is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind About?

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind asks the question: if you had the option to erase all of the painful memories from a breakup, would you? Winslet’s character Clementine decides she’s going to erase her ex-boyfriend Joel (Jim Carrey) by undergoing a non-invasive procedure that can detect and delete painful memories — ultimately causing her to forget someone completely. When Joel finds out that she’s done this, he decides to go through the procedure as well, but as the painful memories begin to disappear and he can only remember the happy ones, he starts to fall back in love with Clementine all over again.

Other cast members include Kristen Dunst, Elijah Wood, Mark Ruffalo and Tom Wilkinson.
