Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgleris 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 she stops by a new doctor's office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace 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.
"Brittany Runs A Marathon" is inspired by the true story of Writer and Director Paul Downs Colaizzo's real-life friend and former roommate (also named Brittany) who began a similar journey toward better health in her late 20s. See more »

A real treat
Got to see this at the premiere at Sundance and the crowd loved it. Brittany is a character you want to root for. The story and acting are spot on. Avoids some of the cliches of feel good rom-com films, and is genuinely funny and touching.
