Based on the musical by Tony Award® winning Jason Robert Brown, “The Last Five Years” is a musical journey through the ups and downs of a love affair starring Tony Award nominated Anna Kendrick and Tony Award nominated Jeremy Jordan. From the film’s description:
The Last Five Years by Tony award winning composer/lyricist Jason Robert Brown is a musical deconstruction of a love affair and a marriage taking place over a five year period. Jamie Wellerstein is a young, talented up and coming novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress.
Their story is told almost entirely through songs using an intercutting time line device; all of Cathy’s songs begin at the end of their marriage and move backwards in time to the beginning of their love affair while Jamie’s songs start at the beginning of their affair and move forward to the end of their marriage. Its beautiful pop music score portrays an honest, heartbreaking, often funny, exploration of love and it’s consequences on individual identity.
Written and directed by Richard LaGravenese. Starring Anna Kendrick (“Into The Woods“, “Pitch Perfect”, “Pitch Perfect 2“), Meg Hudson, Jeremy Jordan, Natalie Knepp, Cat Lynch, Nic Novicki and Alan Simpson. Releases February 13th, 2015 (USA). Return to Thumbnail View.
