Editorial Reviews

A Stanford Law-school dropout named Jillian (Weixler) escapes to the anonymity of Los Angeles to figure out what she wants to do with her life. On the day of her college boyfriend's birthday, she finds herself stuck running an ice cream truck fending off locals and oddball friends alike. This one day spent on a truck on the streets of L.A. will wake Jillian from her aimless daze and make her see that life doesn't stop just because you want it to.

There are lots of independent movies that try to trade on the fact that they are independent as a way to excuse making crappy movies.
Fortunately, this is not one of them. It is, indeed, independent, and it is, indeed, extremely low-budget.
However, it is a very honest film, and every scene is "front and center." The acting is strong throughout. The people who made this movie did a masterful job of keeping the viewer's interest in virtually every scene from start to finish.
Certainly, it is not everyone's "cup of tea." If you gravitate toward mainstream movies with traditional plots, acting, lines and action, you would be wasting your time with this.
However, if you are a devotee of well-made indies, this is definitely one to consider.
And, as an added bonus (and something I didn't realize until watching the credits run), there was an interesting cameo by Tippi Hedren (who, for those of you old enough to remember, was a big-screen movie star in her own right in the 1950s and 1960s).

Jess Weixler's performance is really the heart of the movie as she transitions from angry college student to revealing a more fragile side.

The story is basically a snapshot of Jillian (Weixler) on a day that ends up having more meaning to her than she would first realize as she's been asked to fill in for a friend on a cheap ice cream truck giving out free samples after yet another night at the bar. The people she encounters include Tippi Headren as a former starlet (one that wasn't as famous as Headren was) whom Jillian finally opens up to as well as some fun vignettes with other, sometimes unruly customers.

It's not a traditional Hollywood movie and the "hipster" quality in the sarcastic humor might not be everyone's taste but I was glad to have experienced this when I did at a film festival. It's nice to just see a stripped down story sometimes.

Jess Weixler makes this little indie film memorable. Weixler is an under-appreciated actress. I thought she was wonderful in Peter & Vandy. Weixler's co-star from Peter & Vandy, the equally delightful, Jason Ritter also stars in this film, Free Samples. But Jess Weixler's love interest in Free Samples is Jesse Eisenberg. Weixler's character, Jillian is a law school drop-out who recently broke-up with her boyfriend. Jillian is going through a mini-meltdown. She doesn't know what she wants to do with the rest of her life. Her friends want to go back to law school, but Jillian feels that isn't the right path for her future. She's a lost soul. She's smart but incredibly headstrong. Jillian does a favor for a friend, she fills for her friend at work which takes place in an ice cream sample truck. The plot is simple and hilarious at times. This movie might be boring to some, but I found Free Samples cute and quirky. It's a good indie film. The still beautiful Tippi Hedren also has a smart part in the film. If you're a fan of Jess Weixler, then that's a good enough reason to watch this. Enjoy.

I admit, I have a thing for low-budget indie films with unconventional stories and screwball characters, and this one did not disappoint. The plot is very simple, the events taking place all in one day (with the exception of the first scene), yet the movie doesn't feel lacking; it doesn't feel too short or like there's not enough there. The film is nicely framed. The main character is introduced as an aimless law school dropout who has no direction in life and by the end comes to see that life doesn't just come to a halt simply because you want it to. It's nothing that hasn't been done before, but the film was so well-acted and the characters were so fun and the comedy was so delightfully quirky that I was able to overlook the cliche-ness.
