Starring Jim Carrey at his best and Kate Winslet at her kookiest, Eternal Sunshine is a refreshing take on a modern love story with a surreal twist. Written by Charlie Kaufman, and directed by Michel Gondry, the movie focuses on Joel Barish (Carrey) who is left broken hearted when he learns his ex girlfriend Clementine (Winslet) undertook a procedure to erase him and their love affair from her memory. In a fit of sadness and anger, Joel undertakes the same procedure, but as he watches his memories of Clementine fade away, he realises that he still loves her, and tries to hold onto his memories of her before she disappears forever.

A young English poet (Ewan McGregor) arrives in Paris in 1899. He meets a group of Bohemians who take him to the Moulin Rouge – Paris’ most famous underworld nightclub – where his eyes are drawn to Satine (Nicole Kidman); the club’s most enchanting and sort after courtesan. The pair fall head over heels, however, the owner of the Moulin Rouge invests Satine to a wealthy Duke who will only pay to keep the club going if the courtesan is his and his alone. A passionate love triangle ensues within a barrage of music and wondrous dance routines, but ultimately ends in tragedy.

The daughter Catherine becomes his soulmate, and after her parents die the two grow up wild and free on the moors. But when Catherine meets the son of a wealthy neighbour she marries him for his status and it all turns to tragedy.

    The Time Travelers Wife is on of my all time favorites, The Notebook and Titanic are at a tie for my number one..Dear John is pretty good and A Walk to Remember is amazing. The Last Song is great but some may disagree on the ‘love story’ part of it. But, I guess I just have a thing with Nicholas Sparks books which then make me love the movies.

      Oh and how could I forget! THE VOW!!! I know it’s knewer, but it’s ‘true love’. It’s the best and should also be in the top 20. Plus, It’s a true story!!!

    Brokeback mountain and Dear John should have been part of this list. These two and The Notebook are the best romance movies I’ve ever seen.
