How Do You Define Love?
A movie to take note of is “Paper Heart” starring Michael Cera (“Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist”). Seth Rogen (“Superbad”) is listed in the credits as “himself.” Seth’s most recent appearance on my radar was his witty repartee with Paul Rudd in the Super Bowl commercial for Samsung.
Michael Cera proved his comedic talent as George-Michael Bluth in the TV series “Arrested Development.” In “Paper Heart,” he appears as himself. He doesn’t list this movie on his imdb.com credits, so maybe he appeared in it as a favor to Charlyne Yi, who also plays herself.
This indie movie is about Charlyne Yi who embarks on a quest across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesn’t fully understand: Love. Michael Cera becomes the object of her affection. Weaving together reality and fantasy, “Paper Heart” combines elements of documentary and traditional storytelling to get at modern romance.
“Paper Heart” airs Friday, February 15 at 8:00pm, only on Pittsburgh’s CW.
