In the film "Brittany Runs A Marathon," she's funny, outgoing and always up for a good time.... that's New Yorker Brittany Forgler who is everybody’s best friend ― except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when a doctor tells her to get healthy because she's going down the wrong path, she realizes she's too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until she laces up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon,after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.
Winner of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award. the film hits theaters August 30th. Click below to see my interview with actress Jillian Bell and writer Paul Downs Colaizzo..
