Brittany Runs a Marathon
CAST: Jillian Bell, Jennifer Dundas, Patch Darragh, Michaela Watkins DIRECTOR: Paul Downs Colaizzo
Brittany Forgler is a hilarious, friendly, hot mess of a New Yorker who always knows how to have a good time, but at 27, her late-night adventures and early-morning walks-of-shame are starting to catch up to her. When she stops by a Yelp-recommended doctor's office in an attempt to score some Adderall, she finds herself slapped with a prescription she never wanted. Forced to face reality for the first time in a long time, Brittany laces up her Converse and runs one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. Soon she runs a mile. Brittany finally has direction—but is she on the right path?
Brittany is funny and authentic, but she can also be prickly and stubborn, even hard to like. You know, the way real people are.Barbara VanDenburgh, Arizona Republic
Like its heroine, "Brittany Runs a Marathon" works its way up from the easy comic 2Ks to a more nuanced drama of self-confidence that's able to go the distance.Ty Burr, Boston Globe
Step by step, the funny and insightful dramedy asks less "Why don't we run?" and more "What are we running from?"Nestor Bentancor, Nestor Cine Desde Hollywood
