The Last Five Years stars Academy Award® nominee Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air, Pitch Perfect, Into The Woods) and Tony Award® nominee Jeremy Jordan (Newsies) in the eagerly anticipated film adaptation of 3x Tony Award® winner Jason Robert Brown's acclaimed musical written for the screen and directed by Richard LaGravenese (The Fisher King, Behind The Candelabra).
The Last Five Years (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) follows Sh-K-Boom Records' best-selling The Last Five Years (Premiere Cast Recording), the Grammy and Drama Desk Award-winning label's first-ever cast album released in 2002. The album was produced by Kurt Deutsch, Lawrence Manchester and Richard LaGravenese, executive produced by Steve Norman, Lauren Versel and Janet Brenner, with new orchestrations by Jason Robert Brown.
Funny, passionate, and exuberantly romantic, The Last Five Years takes an intimate look at one young New York City couple's half-decade relationship, telling their story almost entirely through song. Brown's Drama Desk Award-winning book and score – first produced Off Broadway in 2002 – is a wonder of invention and originality, blending complex character and creative chronology to illuminate the couple's multifaceted emotions and constantly shifting feelings towards each other. The Last Five Years had its world premiere earlier this year at the Toronto International Film Festival, earning critical applause from all corners. "The best stage-to-film musical adaptation of the entire post-Chicago boomlet," decreed the Boston Globe, hailing Kendrick to be "the first bona fide movie-musical star of her generation." "A return to the sort of musical that was popular in Hollywood during the genre's Golden Age," declared The Hollywood Reporter, while Variety simply raved, "(The Last Five Years) sounds fantastic." The film's trailer can be streamed on YouTube.
