Storyline

Free Hugs captures the "rock bottom" moment of post-breakup wallowing, when friends lose their patience, and the pitiless world moves on without you. We follow the hilariously bitter Billie (Jaclyn Jonet) as she attempts to find catharsis through comfort food (and wine), sawing her belongings in half and attacking a particularly meaningful local monument. Ultimately Billie must slam into the harsh reality of heartbreak before she can understand that sometimes the purest form of love is a free hug from a stranger. Written by Anonymous

Short and Sweet
19 September 2013 | by Support-World-PeaceSee all my reviews

Although (the stunning) Olivia Wilde's directorial debut is nothing groundbreaking or life changing, "Free Hugs" is a light-hearted and funny short that by the end will have you feeling warm inside with a smile on your face. If you were a fan of "Bridesmaids" then the humour in this film is perfect for you, as it's full of hilarious bleak moments and wonderfully awkward moments.

It's also only going to take up 20 minutes of your life and is available on youtube on Glamour Magazine's official channel, so it's perfect if you need something to make you laugh while you take a short break from work or study.
