Paper Heart
Release Date:Director:Writers:Cinematographer:Starring:Studio/Run Time:Awkward love blossoms for Cera and Yi in experimental documentaryIn Paper Heart, comedienne Charlyne Yi takes it upon herself to investigate her own romantic anomie in a series of forcibly adorable interview segments with married couples, Tarot readers and Michael Cera.

But sequences including a sobering interview with a gay New York couple inject much-needed substance into an overdose of post-Juno ironic detachment.

Sweet, rambling and flimsy, this pleasant examination on the frailty of human attraction might not reverse divorce statistics, but it does make for a delightful date-night alternative.
