Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan star in THE LAST FIVE YEARS, Richard LaGravenese’s film adaptation of the Jason Robert Brown musical. The film hits theaters in February 2015. Below, check out an all-new poster for the highly anticipated movie courtesy of IMDb.
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.

Her other film credits include “Camp,” “Pitch Perfect,” “50/50,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” and the “Twilight” series. She will soon be seen in the role of ‘Cinderella’ in Disney’s INTO THE WOODS.
