Paper Heart Synopsis

Charlyne Yi does not believe in love. Or so she says. Well, at the very least, she doesnít believe in fairy-tale love or the Hollywood mythology of love, and her own experiences have turned her into yet another modern-day skeptic.

PAPER HEART follows Charlyne as she embarks on a quest across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesnít fully understand. As she and her good friend (and director) Nicholas search for answers and advice about love, Charlyne talks with friends and strangers, scientists, bikers, romance novelists, and children. They each offer diverse views on modern romance, as well as various answers to the age-old question: does true love really exist?

Then, shortly after filming begins, Charlyne meets a boy after her own heart: Michael Cera. As their relationship develops on camera, her pursuit to discover the nature of love takes on a fresh new urgency. Charlyne risks losing the person she finds closest to her heart.

Combining elements of documentary and traditional storytelling, reality and fantasy, PAPER HEART brings a fresh perspective to the modern romance and redefines the classic love story.

The deal with Paper Heart, so far as I can tell, is that it's about a comedian, Charlyne Yi, who travels around the country asking everyday people about love. And yet as a promotional video for the film, they've released a video of Yi interviewing Paul Scheer, another comedian and someone distinctly unqualified to talk about love

We an Extra Scene from Paper Heart. This is a scene which isnít actually in the film, but fits into the same mold of Charlyne Yi interviewing random people about love. Except unlike most of what youíll see in Paper Heart
