Movie Info

Brittany Forgler is a hilarious, friendly, hot mess of a New Yorker who always knows how to have a good time, but at 27, her late-night adventures and early-morning walks-of-shame are starting to catch up to her. When she stops by a Yelp-recommended doctor's office in an attempt to score some Adderall, she finds herself slapped with a prescription she never wanted. Forced to face reality for the first time in a long time, Brittany laces up her Converse and runs one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. Soon she runs a mile. Brittany finally has direction--but is she on the right path?

All Critics (173) | Top Critics (32) | Fresh (153) | Rotten (20)

  • The trailer suggests a wacky DayGlo remix of Amy Schumer's body-conscious comedy I Feel Pretty, but don't believe it. This film, a debut from the writer-director Paul Downs Colaizzo, is made of sterner stuff...

  • It's a film with charm and sweetness but a twinge of anxiety, a little gravitational pull to darker places.

  • Colaizzo gives us a vividly believable picture of what it's like to be youngish, single and in danger of losing your way in any big city where status can depend solely on a talent for keeping up appearances via an artfully arranged social media feed.

    Oct 30, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The highest mountain Brittany has to climb is getting over herself, a struggle Bell makes poignantly, piercingly real in her performance and that takes the film into its darkest yet most relatable moments.

    Sep 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [W]hat should be an old-school audience pleaser winds up being a much more complicated film that is often at odds with itself.

    Sep 6, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • I too admire Colaizzo's effort, but in the end found myself ruminating on why I was expected to cheer at the finish line.
