Brittany Runs a Marathon

I’ll just put it right out there – I loved this movie.  The film walked a really delicate balance in that it was not preachy or whiny or judgmental.   I think this story has been told many times before but I don’t recall seeing a version that was brutally honest and at times touching without going too far in either direction.  The final scene stays true to the movie – I am glad that it wasn’t an “a-ha” moment.
