News   PHOTO CALL: "The Last Five Years" Premieres in NYC! Jeremy Jordan, Jason Robert Brown, Laura Osnes, Kelli O'Hara, Rob McClure and More on the Red Carpet
 
The highly anticipated film adaptation of Jason Robert Brown's The Last Five Years, starring Tony Award nominees Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, will also be available on Video on Demand when the film hits theatres Feb. 13. A star-studded NY premiere was held Feb. 9 at the Minetta Lane Theatre, home of the original Off-Broadway production!

The film celebrated its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival Sept. 7.

The Last Five Years, Brown's semi-autobiographical, two-person musical that documents a five-year relationship of a couple falling in and out of love, is adapted and directed by Richard LaGravenese ("P.S. I Love You").

Kendrick stars as Cathy, a struggling actress who falls in love with rising Jewish novelist Jamie Wellerstein, played by Jordan. The musical explores their relationship from both points of view through a series of solo songs — Cathy telling the story in reverse chronological order, and Jamie starting from the beginning (the pair only comes together at their wedding, the turning point of the show).

The film screened at Lincoln Center, where Kendrick, Jordan, LaGravenese and Brown were on hand to talk about the adaptation. Playbill.com recapped the film and the event here.
