Following an exclusive two-week theatrical run at The Empire Leicester Square, the movie adaptation of Tony Award-winning Jason Robert Brown’s hit Off-Broadway musical, The Last Five Years is being released on VOD (Video on Demand) on 1 May and DVD on 4 May. And we have TWO copies of the forthcoming DVD release to give away!
The Last Five Years stars Academy Award nominee Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan in a honest and funny portrayal of the highs and lows of a five-year relationship. Told almost entirely through song, the film received its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and is directed and adapted for the screen by Richard LaGravenese.
Filled with the lively energy of New York City’s cultural milieu, the film tells the story of the five-year relationship between rising novelist Jamie Wellerstein (Jeremy Jordan) and struggling actress Cathy Hyatt (Anna Kendrick). As Jamie’s new novel vaults him to the top of the literary scene, Cathy is still doing summer stock in Ohio, and their diverging levels of success pose pressing and dire challenges to their love. The film tells Cathy’s side of the story in reverse order, starting from the end of their marriage, while Jamie’s version of events begins when the couple first meets.
Writer/director Richard LaGravenese rose to prominence as a screenwriter with The Fisher King for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. LaGravenese went on to write numerous screenplays including The Mirror Has Two Faces, The Horse Whisperer, Water For Elephants and Behind the Candelabra, and most recently he wrote and directed P.S. I Love You and Beautiful Creatures.
