RUN WOMAN RUN is what I like to call a feel-good anti-rom-com about Beck, a single mom who has to grow up and fix her life - not for the love of a man - but to live, to thrive, and to learn her language. ” Zoe Leigh Hopkins, Director, Run Woman Run Directed by Zoe Leigh HopkinsCast: Dakota Ray Herbert, Asivak Koostachin, Lorne Cardinal, Jayli Wolf, Braeden Clarke, Sladen Peltier and Alex RiceComedy/Drama, PG, 101 minutes (Canada) Single mother Beck has been running from reality. Her “breakfast of champions” is a 5 cream, 5 sugar coffee, and donuts. Something has to give and it does when Beck finds herself in a diabetic coma and visited by a ghostly ancestor, the legendary Indigenous marathon runner Tom Longboat, who becomes her wise-cracking new life coach. Told with a lighthearted touch, Run Woman Run is a feel-good anti-rom-com about a woman who has to tackle the ghosts of her past before she can run toward a new future.
