End Credits - July 8, 2020 (Brittany Runs a Marathon)

10Jul

This week on End Credits, we're getting in shape. Actually, we're going to watch other people get in shape because self-improvement is best left to the people in the movies; we're just trying to survive COVID-19 here. Speaking of which, the effects of the pandemic still weigh heavily on the news of the week even though we're still making future plans.

This Wednesday, July 8, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:

News of the Week. In this week's round up of the latest movie news, we see that going back to the theatres might still be a long way off even in the places where they're currently re-opening. On top of that, Cineplex is suing their would-be buyer, TIFF is announcing a mixed program of at-home and in-festival offerings, and there's another wrinkle in the behind-the-scenes drama on Justice League.

REVIEW: Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019). It's been pretty hot outside these days in Guelph, so it's maybe not the best time to actually run a marathon. Instead, why don't you stay in where it's cool and watch a movie about a woman training to run her own marathon. Jillian Bell plays the titular runner in this comedy streaming on Amazon Prime that talks about millennial angst, body image, realistic expectations, and running, but is it funny?

End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
