Utkarsh Ambudkar & Paul Downs Colaizzo On "Brittany Runs a Marathon"
After his scene-stealing performance in last year’s Sundance Opening Night film, "Blindspotting," Utkarsh Ambudkar returned to the festival earlier this year opposite Jillian Bell in the comedy, "Brittany Runs A Marathon." The film follows the hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler, everybody’s best friend ― except maybe her own. The irresistible cast, led by Bell, lends heart and soul to this inspirational story of a party girl who finally finds real friends — and dignity — by taking control of her future, one city block at a time. Ambudkar took the BUILD stage to discuss the movie and the upcoming hip-hop musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda, "Freestyle Love Supreme." He was joined by director Paul Downs Colaizzo.
