The Last Five Years

Synopsis

Based on the hit musical by Jason Robert Brown, THE LAST FIVE YEARS chronicles the exuberant rise and tragic fall of young love over a five year period. Jamie Wallerstein (Jordan) is a 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 romance, 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.
