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).
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 is absolutely perfect as a law school drop out with no direction in life. The scenes with her serving free samples of ice cream and attitude were hilarious! Read morePublished 23 months ago by Acid burn 73
