In this new trailer for the offbeat comedy "Free Samples," indie starlet Jess Weixler (Teeth, The Lie) gets to show her grumpy side playing a disenchanted college dropout who takes over her friend's ice cream truck for a day. Her time passing out free promotional samples of ice cream becomes more unbearable when she's forced to deal with a cast of odd customers, including Social Network's Jesse Eisenberg as a guy whom she just met during a drunken night at a bar, but has zero recollection of their meeting. It seems after dropping out of law school, her life has completely gone off the rails. And after working a few hours in a greasy food truck, she finally realizes that her world desperately needs to change.
The indie comedy, which also stars Jason Ritter, Halley Feiffer, and Tippi Hedren, marks the feature debut of director Jay Gammill. It premiered last year at the Tribeca film festival and is expected to be released sometime later in the year, though an official date has not been set.
A hungover law-school dropout (Jess Weixler) fills in as a server at her friendʼs ice cream truck, doling out free samples to locals and oddball friends alike, including a man courting her who she barely remembers from the night before
