‘Brittany Runs a Marathon’ Review: An Inspiring, Uproarious Crowdpleaser Turns Jillian Bell into a Star [Sundance]

In 2014, the adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s memoir Wild followed Reese Witherspoon’s 1,100 mile -long hike across the Pacific Crest Trail.

But playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo‘s approach as a first-time writer/director is infinitely funnier, fairly less harrowing, but equally significant as a portr...

‘Brittany Runs a Marathon’ gives Jillian Bell the spotlight

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — When Jillian Bell is offered roles that have to do with body issues, they usually fall into two buckets: They’re either making fun of the character’s weight, or, they’re not presenting it in a way that she finds compelling or authentic.

That’s a surprising note in a film about five ...
