Story


In this adaptation of Jasln Robert Brown's hit off-Broadway musical, "The Last Five Years" deconstructs a love affair and a marriage taking place over a five year period. Jamie, a young, talented up-and-coming Jewish novelist falls in love with Cathy, a "Shiksa Goddess" and struggling actress. The film, told almost entirely through song and a beautiful pop music score, portrays an honest, heartbreaking, often funny, exploration of love and its consequences on individual identity.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Kendrick and Jordan work miracles, giving glorious voice to their roles in performances that brim over with humor, heart and ravishing romance..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..director Richard LaGravenese has done a stylish, fast-paced job..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..for LaGravenese, Kendrick, and Jordan, it probably qualifies as a small but intense labor of love. For Kendrick in particular, it's a sign that she could sing her way through something bigger..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]
