Brittany’s (Jillian Bell, Workaholics, Rough Night) hard-partying lifestyle leads to a diagnosis that requires radical – and hilarious – action. Winner, Audience Award, Sundance.

Sharp-witted and very funny, Brittany (the brilliant Jillian Bell) is nearing her 30s but still has a job that barely covers the bills, goes out partying every night and frequently does things she really shouldn't. A doctor visit reveals that Brittany is overweight and has dangerously high blood pressure. Unable to afford a gym membership, Brittany decides to run around her block. Soon, egged on by her seemingly perfect neighbour and other local runners, Brittany is pursuing the dream of running the New York Marathon…but soon her old tendency to self-sabotage takes hold once again. Unpredictable, and defying convention, Brittany Runs a Marathon delicately balances humour and pathos in a truly triumphant combination.

Fri 7 June session is proudly presented by Flicks.com.au, Australia's #1 movie & cinema website

The greatest trick of Colaizzo’s winning comedy: it doesn’t need that cheese factor to inspire plenty of tears and cheers, because it’s got something better than overused quotes or overhyped drama. It’s got Jillian Bell.
Kate Erbland, IndieWire
This terrifically engaging debut feature by playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo is the best kind of ‘crowdpleaser’: one that earns every emotional beat.
Dennis Harvey, Variety
