An audience award-winner at Sundance, Brittany Runs a Marathon is a warm, funny and relatable comedy about body positivity, self-love and acceptance.

Chronic underachiever Brittany Forgler is a bit of a hot mess: 27 years old, clubbing every night and barely scraping by on a minimum wage in Manhattan. Looking to score an Adderall prescription out of a doctor she found on Yelp, Brittany is instead faced with some hard truths about her lifestyle. Determined to change her ways but too broke to join a gym, she starts running – one city block at a time, and soon she sets her sights on the New York Marathon.

Winner of the US Dramatic Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, Brittany Runs a Marathon is the directorial debut of playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo. Starring former Saturday Night Live writer Jillian Bell, whose comedic chops had the Sundance audience in stitches, Brittany Runs a Marathon gently and sensitively reminds us what it takes to truly change our lives for the better.

“This terrifically engaging debut feature by playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo is the best kind of crowdpleaser: one that earns every emotional beat that might seem formulaic in four out of five similar enterprises.” – Variety
