The Last 5 Years

If you loved seeing Anna Kendrick belt out some tunes in Pitch Perfect back in 2012 (the sequel is coming next summer), and you're excited to hear her in a real musical like Into the Woods this winter, then you'll probably be excited about The Last 5 Years. The film, directed by Richard LaGravanese (Behind the Candelabra) is an adaptation of the Off-Broadway musical of the same name, following a love affair and marriage taking place over a five year period. Kendrick shares the screen with "Smash" star and gifted singer Jeremy Jordan, and the film has just been picked up by Radius-TWC before it premieres at TIFF this weekend.

Here's the first photo from Richard LaGravenese's The Last 5 Years straight from Radius-TWC:

The Last 5 Years

The Last Five Years is written and directed by Richard LaGravenese (Behind the Candelabra, P.S. I Love You). Jamie Wellerstein (Jeremy Jordan) is a young, talented, rising novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt (Anna Kendrick), a struggling actress. Their story is told almost entirely through song. 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. They meet in the center when Jamie proposes. Radius-TWC releases the film on Valentine's Day weekend in 2015.
