If “Paper Heart” doesn’t find a way into your heart, then you may just have the same problem Charlyne Yi has in the movie: the inability to understand love.
In this mockumentary that mixes reality with fiction, Yi goes on a quest across the United States to try and figure out this crazy little thing called love (but of course, with an abundance of awkward humour along the way).
The film kicks off with Yi in the midst of Las Vegas, approaching strangers and asking them about love. This continues throughout the entire movie as she goes from state to state trying to figure out what love feels like, and it seems like it’s something everyone from bikers to little kids, novelists, divorce lawyers and celebrities have a say in.
This is the premise of “Paper Heart,” a film Yi co-wrote, executive produced and stars in. However, the movie isn’t just about Yi interviewing Americans about love. See, the cameras don’t just follow Yi during her interviews, they’re supposedly rolling around the clock, including a party where she meets Canadian funnyman Michael Cera (who like Yi, plays himself in this movie).
This really shakes up the film as now her quest to find love reaches a new personal and urgent level. As usual, Michael Cera plays the same uncomfortable character he always does, but he’s clearly great at it so I’m not one to complain. However, this time he’s been paired up with someone equally (if not more) socially inept: Yi. Together they create unconventional movie magic moments (which is really refreshing) and will definitely have you laughing.
After the hit gambling movie “21,” Kevin Spacey is once again teaming up with author Ben Mezrich to produce “The Social Network,” an adaptation of the the new book “The Accidental Billionaires.” The book tells the story of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg.
There have been rumours that actors including “Transformers” star Shia Labeouf, Canadian Michael Cera and “I Love You, Beth Cooper’s” Paul Rust are up for the lead role. However, in an interview with MTV News, Spacey set the record straight and said no one has read for the part.
“I can’t imagine anyone’s read for it because we haven’t really announced the director…So I don’t think anyone’s read for it. Maybe in their fantasy they’ve auditioned for it,” he told MTV News.
