Food trucks are so in right now, but working in one is no joke.
Meet Jillian, the anti-heroine of "Free Samples." Her life is a mess, and at the moment she's in charge of an ice cream truck despite a monster hangover and some rather poor decisions the night before. Or, in general, since she's dropped out of law school and bellied up to the bar.
"Free Samples" stars Jess Weixler as Jillian, Jesse Eisenberg as a would-be suitor, Halley Feiffer ("Bored to Death," "The Squid and the Whale") as Jillian's well-meaning friend and Jason Ritter as one of her unwitting customers/victims.
Jess Weixler first caught our eye in the horror/comedy "Teeth" about a teen who discovers she's got a rather biting problem between her legs. While she's appeared in indie films since then, it will be great to see her star in another feature, and hopefully this big premiere will be just the ticket.
"Free Samples" will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 20 as a Spotlight Feature. Other cool Spotlight films to keep your eye out for include "2 Days in New York" with Julie Delpy and Chris Rock, the period comedy about vibrators "Hysteria," Morgan Spurlock's documentary about male grooming "Mansome," and Sarah Polley's tear-jerking relationship drama "Take This Waltz" with Seth Rogen and Michelle Williams.
Stay tuned for more Tribeca news and coverage, and check out the trailer below.
