What if you never believed in true love? And were ok with that? Life would probably be a lot easier, for sure, and that’s exactly what comedienne Charlyne Yi thought in the recent semi-documentary Paper Heart. Bolstered by her need to understand what love really is, Charlyne and director Nick Jasenovec set out on a trip cross-country to find out and document why people go gaga over love. Along the way, she talks to lawyers, chemists, ministers, writers and even a group of playground kids, who all clue Charlyne in on what they think love is. And so does one Michael Cera, who, despite her disbelief in love, Charlyne can’t help but sort of… fall for! Paper Heart did well in theaters and garnered positive reviews, mostly because of Yi’s true-to-life portrayal of someone experiencing love for the first time. Yi and Cera are funny and quirky, and help to re-imagine the modern romance in a way that doesn’t involve fairytale weddings, but pretty much just a real girl and a real boy. That’s the kind of love WE love. In fact, we love it so much that we’re happy to bequeath it to you, in DVD form no less!
The Paper Heart DVD and Blu-ray, out now in all major retailers and available on Amazon, includes some super sweet bonus features, including: “Paper Heart Uncut” (the making of film), live musical performances by Charlyne Yi, “Heaven” ( a music video by Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera, oodles of deleted scenes, and love interviews with the comedians!
