Must Watch: Official Trailer for Charlyne Yi's Paper Heart
Overture Films, who actually just bought this film a few weeks ago, has debuted the trailer for Paper Heart, the faux-documentary starring Michael Cera and Charlyne Yi that debuted at Sundance this year. For a bit of clarification - this is not a real documentary and it was actually scripted, however, as far as I know, Cera and Yi are dating in real life. I know this is an indie film and they've got to sell it to audiences, but some of the best parts are ruined in this trailer. If you know you already want to see this, then I suggest you skip the trailer, and just go anyway. But if you're unsure, then maybe you should check it out.
I actually really enjoyed this a lot more than I was expecting to when I saw it at Sundance (read my review), and would definitely suggest it to anyone who is even mildly interested from this trailer or otherwise.

Charlyne Yi does not believe in love. Or so she says. Well, at the very least, she doesn’t 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 doesn’t fully understand.
Paper Heart is directed by first-time filmmaker Nicholas Jasenovec. The screenplay was co-written by Jasenovec and Charlyne Yi, a stand up comedian who you may recognize from her cameos in Knocked Up or Semi-Pro. This debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this year and won the Waldo Scott Screenwriting Award. Overture Films is bringing Paper Heart to limited theaters starting on August 7th this year.
