'Free Samples' is not a masterpiece, but it's a simple, understated
spark of quirkiness and brilliance, without doubt. Not only is it hard
not to like this film, it's hard not to like the sarcastic, drop-out
Jillian, played by Jess Weixler, who gives a faultless, genuine
performance. One thing I find great is how we know nothing about
Jillian initially, but we gradually learn more and more as she sells
more and more ice-cream through the day. Jesse Eisenberg gives another
cool performance of his and the ever-wonderful Tippi Hedren gives a
brilliant touch to this delight.
This indie piece shows how so much can hit you throughout a day of serving chocolate or vanilla ice-cream samples. With subtle emotional input and very funny scenes, 'Free Samples' is a desert not to be turned down.
