I watched this great documentary today that I discovered thanks to Rotten Tomatoes, called Paper Heart. It's about a young woman's journey to discover what love really is and if it is possible for her to obtain it. She spends most of the movie affirming that she doesn't believe in love, until it accidently drops itself in her lap, in the form of actor Michael Cera, who's starred in brilliant indie films such as Juno with Ellen Page and the better well-known flick Superbad. He is so cute and awkward, how can you not help but fall for him? She spends most of the film interviewing other people around the US about what they feel is love, like couples who have been together for fifty years to wedding chapel operators and preachers in Vegas to a bikers at a biker bar. It made me laugh and cry, and I think it would be great to use as a part of a teen or adult program in the library. Here's the trailer if you are interested.
