SUNDANCE '10 PODCAST: Dax Shepard & Katie Aselton ("The Freebie")
Darren (Shepard) and Annie (Aselton) have an enviable relationship built on love, trust, and communication. After seven years of marriage, they wouldn’t change their relationship one bit. They still enjoy each other’s company and laugh at each other’s jokes, but, unfortunately, they can’t remember the last time they had sex. When a dinner party conversation leads to an honest discussion about the state of their love life, and a bikini photo shoot leads to crossword puzzles instead of sex, they begin to flirt with a way to spice things up. The deal: one night of no-strings-attached sex with a stranger for each of them. Can one night of freedom be just what they need?A few days before The Freebie's world premiere, I spoke with Aselton and Shepard about their collaboration, being too candid among friends, whether Aselton is concerned with the film's passing resemblance to Humpday, and if Shepard recognizes how miserably prescient Idiocracy seems with each passing year.
