Welcome to another episode of Movies that Make Us! We’re continuing our theme of growth, change, overcoming obstacles, and movies that make us feel good with this week’s episode featuring Brittany Runs a Marathon.
In this film, Brittany (Jillian Bell) lives in New York City and struggles with her weight and self esteem. She sets out to better herself and eventually wants to run in the New York Marathon. It’s much more than the typical out of shape funny character that then changes and loses a ton of weight and everything is perfect. Brittany struggles and there are times where she is not a good person, but she overcomes the setbacks and struggles to continue to grow. It has more language than the typical movies we review, so we want to alert you in case that is something you are cautious of. It’s funny, it’s heartbreaking, it’s got some real depth and is one heck of a film debut for director Paul Downs Colaizzo
