Following the first clip released back in September, RADiUS-TWC has debuted the first trailer for their upcoming romance The Last Five Years. Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan star as Cathy Hiatt and Jamie Wallerstein, whose romance over a five-year period is chronicled in this romance from writer-director Richard LaGravenese, based on the hit musical of the same name. RADiUS-TWC acquired the musical back in September, following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
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.
