Who knew free ice cream can bring so much anguish? "Free Samples" is an indie comedy from first-time feature director Jay Gammill, starring Jess Weixler (from "Teeth" fame) as a befuddled law-school dropout who reluctantly agrees to take care of her friend's ice cream truck for a day. After encountering an oddball cast of customers, including Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) and Jason Ritter (TVs Parenthood) as potential suitors, she realizes her life of over-boozing and over-sleeping needs a new direction. Following its debut at last year's Tribeca film festival, "Free Samples" will be getting a theatrical release on May 31st and a Video-On-Demand release on May 21st. The movie received a new trailer, you can view it above.
Stanford Law School dropout Jillian (Jess Weixler) is hung-over -- really hung-over -- and now finds herself trapped in food-truck hell, doling out free samples of ice cream topped with extra attitude. Over the course of one crazy day, she encounters a cast of oddball characters, including a retired movie star (Tippi Hedren), last night's drunken hook-up (Jesse Eisenberg), a friend who dreams of serving ice cream pants-less (Jason Ritter), and, of course, her ex-fiance. Will this day spent in a Los Angeles food truck wake Jillian from her aimless daze and make her realize that life doesn't stop just because you want it to?
