Icon Film Distribution has released the poster for the new musical romance The Last Five Years, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan. Check it out in the player below!
An adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s acclaimed Off-Broadway musical, The Last Five Years chronicles a love affair and marriage taking place over a five-year period. Jamie Wellerstein (Jordan) is a young, talented up and coming novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt (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.
Adapted for the screen and directed by Richard LaGravenese (P.S. I Love You), The Last Five Years will be released by RADiUS just in time for Valentine’s Day on February 13, 2015.
“For the romantic of heart, ‘The Last 5 Years’ is a love story that delivers across the board,” said RADiUS co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego when the film was first acquired. “Richard has done an extraordinary job with Jason Robert Browns music and lyrics. Anna Kendrick continues to impress what a voice! and, Jeremy Jordan is bound for stardom. Those familiar with the show will be thrilled with the faithful adaptation and audiences everywhere are in for a real treat.”
