RADiUS-TWC’s acquisition and the Valentine’s Day release of the Anna Kendrick musical “The Last Five Years” was some of the first news out of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Now, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got a short clip of Kendrick singing her heart out in one of her many upcoming musical movies.
The film co-stars Jeremy Jordan as Jaime, an up-and-coming novelist. Kendrick plays Cathy, an aspiring actress. The story follows the journey of their five year relationship, but with an unexpected twist: Jaime’s side of the story is told in chronological order; his songs moving linearly through time. Cathy’s, however, moves backwards — her side of the story is told from the end of their relationship to the beginning. Check out the clip below, obviously from a happy point in Cathy’s story.
“The Last Five Years” will hit theaters on Valentine’s Day, 2015.
