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? With Jillian Bell, Jennifer Dundas, Patch Darragh.
“‘Brittany Runs a Marathon’ is an earnest and hilarious dramedy that finally gives Jillian Bell a role worthy of her gifts.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
“Yes, Brittany can be the worst. But when she’s at her best, she’s kinda great.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
“The movie succeeds because Bell succeeds. It’s gratifying to see a so-called character actress with reliably deadly comic timing loosen up, stretch out and learn what it means to carry a movie.” (Chicago Tribune)
