Starring Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera, Paper Heart is not your traditional romantic documentary. Teaming up with friend and director Nicholas Jasenovec, Charlyne embarks on an epic cross-country adventure to ask Americans the simple question of “Does true love really exist,” believing herself that it is only found in fairy tales. Along the way, she meets for the first time actor Michael Cera, and an unlikely romance begins to blossom. As their relationship grows stronger, the answer to her question becomes even more important than ever.

Recommendation: B+
Very original and creative, Paper Heart is a heartwarming film that will surely captivate audiences and give them the opportunity to look into their own hearts, and fall in love all over again. The film has everything that an independent should have. It feels raw and rough around the edges, which brings you closer into the story and characters, and breathes life into the piece. A great flick for those who believe that true love may really exist.

Paper Heart is produced by Overture Films and opens in select theaters August 7, 2009 and expands on August 14, 2009.
