While funloving Brittany Forgler (Jillian Bell) is popular with everyone she knows, she doesn’t like herself very much. She’s fed up with all the parties, her job, unhealthy relationships. She can’t afford a gym, but she’s too proud to ask for help. Brittany doesn’t know what to do, until her neighbor (Michaela Watkins) encourages her to start running. And soon she’s set herself an incredible goal – to run the New York Marathon.
Refusing to perpetuate false beauty standards BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON is a charming and honest feelgood comedy with a few rough edges.
