Last 5 Years, The


Big-screen adaption of the popular off-Broadway musical by Tony Award winning composer and lyricist Jason Robert Brown. The Last Five Years is a musical deconstruction of a love affair and a marriage taking place over a five year period. Jamie Wellerstein (Jeremy Jordan) is an up and coming Jewish novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt (Anna Kendrick), a Shiksa Goddess and 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. They meet in the center at their wedding.
