Brittany Runs a Marathon: Film Review

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Jillian Bell because she always seems to play the same annoying supporting character but she’s finally been given the lead role and a chance to show what she’s capable of in Brittany Runs a Marathon.

Official Secrets tells the remarkable true story of Katharine Gun, a whistleblower who took action and risked her livelihood in an effort to prevent the Iraq War. I didn’t know anything about her so I’m glad this film has been made to shine a light on her bravery.
