Davy Rothbart is great as the head of FOUND magazine, a collection of discarded notes and photos. He’s not so good at relationships. That’s not our opinion, that’s what he shows us in the documentary My Heart Is an Idiot. Directed by David Meiklejohn, the film follows Rothbart as he crosses the country on a tour for FOUND. Back home is a woman Rothbart is obsessing about. Trying to put together a game plan as to how to win her heart, Rothbart asks various people he meets on tour, such as Newt Gingrich and Zooey Deschanel, for advice. (Deschanel’s advice for Rothbart? “Just do it!”) Rothbart and director Meiklejohn will be in attendance at the screening. 6:30 and 9 p.m. Barnevelder Movement Center, 2201 Preston. For information, call 713‑868‑2101 or visit www.aurorapictureshow.org. $10 to $15.
