NAME OF FILM: BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON (2019)
DIRECTOR(S): Paul Downs Colaizzo
STARRING: Jillian Bell, Jennifer Dundas, Patch Darragh
GENRE: Comedy Film
SYNOPSIS: The long-overdue-for-star-status Jillian Bell (Workaholics) is the witty Brittany, a twenty-seven-year-old with a job that barely pays the rent and a New York party girl lifestyle that’s starting to take its toll. When she sees a doctor to help with her “focus,” she instead gets a wake up call about the damage she’s doing to her body. Determined to get in shape she starts to run the city streets literally one block at a time. It sucks, of course, but along the way she finds friendship with unlikely new running partners, who set their sights on running the 26.2 mile NYC Marathon, and begins to realize it may be more than just weight that’s dragging her down.
