Includes a conversation with director Paul Downs Colaizzo and actors Jillian Bell, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Micah Stock and Michaela Watkins
Please note the 7:00 pm start time for this event.
Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler is 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. Soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: run in the New York City Marathon.
2019, 104 minutes, color, DCP | Written and directed by Paul Downs Colaizzo; with Jillian Bell, Michaela Watkins, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Lil Rel Howery, Micah Stock, Alice Lee
