Chronic underachiever Brittany Forgler is a bit of a hot mess: 27 years old, clubbing every night and barely scraping by on a minimum wage in Manhattan. Looking to score an Adderall prescription out of a doctor she found on Yelp, Brittany is instead faced with some hard truths about her lifestyle. Determined to change her ways but too broke to join a gym, she starts running – one city block at a time, and soon she sets her sights on the New York Marathon.
“This terrifically engaging debut feature by playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo is the best kind of crowdpleaser: one that earns every emotional beat that might seem formulaic in four out of five similar enterprises.” – Variety
