Paper Heart

Ultra-introverted yet up-and-coming alt.comedian Charlyne Yi wrote and stars in this (almost) autobiographical (kinda) documentary. In it, she sets out on a quest across America to document the one thing she doesn't fully understand: love. In the course of her journey, she meets and falls in love with equally nerdy actor Michael Cera (Superbad). Yi and Cera really were (are?) a couple, but it's impossible to tell where the cute 'n' cuddly (and slightly clever) documentary ends and the improvised performance art begins. Best not to guess—just go with the whole mumblecore "meta"-ness of the experiment. 88 minutes PG-13.
