The film has been playing the festival circuit for the last couple months after its debut in Toronto back in September.
The Last 5 Years is “a musical deconstruction of a love affair and a 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 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.”
Check the film out in theaters and on VOD on February 13!
