‘The Last Five Years’ Trailer Gets Musical With Anna Kendrick


Anna Kendrick’s musical talents are on full display with Pitch Perfect and the upcoming Into the Woods, and with director Richard LaGravenese’s “The Last Five Years,” she’s singing a few notes about love and marriage.

Based on the Jason Robert Brown musical, The Last Five Years centers on the up and down romance between a Jewish novelist (Jeremy Jordan) and a struggling actress (Anna Kendrick). Shot in just 21 days in New York City, Brooklyn, and Staten Island, the film is told almost entirely through song.

LaGravenese, who sees The Last Five Years as this generation’s The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, previously directed Beautiful Creatures, P.S. I Love You and Freedom Writers. He’s also a credited screenwriter for the upcoming WWII feature Unbroken and penned the HBO movie Behind the Candelabra.

The Last Five Years hits theaters and VOD on February 13.
