Thanks to Icon Film Distribution we may watch the first official trailer of The Last Five Years, the upcoming romantic musical drama comedy movie written and directed by Richard LaGravenese and starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan:
THE LAST FIVE YEARS
When love ends, the only way to understand it is to go back to the start.
In 2015 sing your heart out!
“The film 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.”
Love Anna Kendrick but am put off by her singing in this film… I’d rather watch and listen to her performance in Pitch Perfect 2.
The release date of the Last Five Years is set to February 13, 2015.
