She’s taking control of her future, one city block at a time. Watch the official trailer for Brittany Runs A Marathon, starring Jillian Bell, in theaters August 23. #RunBrittanyRun pic.twitter.com/jcGBVpaSCU— Brittany Runs A Marathon (@BrittanyRunsMov) June 5, 2019
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?
The new film starring Jillian Bell begins opening in limited release this week and opens wide in September. I was fortunate to get to attend an early screening and I absolutely loved the film. Many of these types of films shame or make cheap jokes at the expense of the characters and this film isnt like that at all.
Kate McKinnon and Jillian Bell sit down to discuss the film.
And this is the real story that inspired the film.
