Paper Heart is an interesting-looking directorial debut from Judd Apatow crony Nicholas Jasenovec. Charlyne Yi, a young musician and performer who “doesn’t know what love is and knows she will never be in it,” starts filming a documentary on what love means. In the process of interviewing people like Seth Rogen, Demitri Martin and Martin Starr, she meets and actually connects with Michael Cera, much to her surprise and consternation. Scripted but filmed in a documentary style, this Sundance hit is due for release this August, and it looks to have all the makings of a sweet indie phenomenon.
