Watch: Anna Kendrick Sings Love Songs in UK Trailer for ‘The Last Five Years’

Watch: Anna Kendrick Sings Love Songs in UK Trailer for 'The Last Five Years'

The bubbly and vivacious Anna Kendrick is quickly becoming the poster girl for stage-to-screen musical adaptations. She shines as Cinderella in Rob Marshall’s forthcoming “Into the Woods,” kicked ass in “Pitch Perfect” and now stars in “The Last Five Years,” which RADiUS grabbed at this year’s TIFF.

Featuring the smash stage production’s original book and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, the film chronicles the rise and fall of a love affair and marriage: Jamie (Jordan) is a novelist, Cathy (Kendrick) a struggling actress, and their story is told through song across different time periods. 

This looks to be a movie for die-hard musical fans. Reviews out of Toronto were mixed, but Variety wrote, “It’s easy to fall in love with Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan in this heart-breaking musical two-hander, as they retrace a love affair from opposite ends.”

RADiUS-TWC releases the film stateside on February 13th, 2015, right in time for Valentine’s Day.
