||Synopsis: The Last 5 Years by Tony award winning composer and lyricist Jason Robert Brown is a musical deconstruction of a love affair and a marriage taking place over a five year period. Jamie Wellerstein is a young, talented up and coming Jewish novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt, a Shiksa Goddess struggling actress. Their story is told almost entirely through songs using an intercutting time line device; all of Cathy's songs begin at the end of their marriage and move backwards in time to the beginning of their love affair while Jamie's songs start at the beginning of their affair and move forward to the end of their marriage. They meet in the center when Jamie proposes. Written by Anonymous

Greetings again from the darkness. Adapting a hit stage production to
the big screen is always a bit challenging. When it's a full blown
musical, the challenge grows exponentially. Throw in a highly unusual
story-telling structure and limit 99% of the screen time to two
characters and, well, a filmmaker is either off-the-charts ambitious or
one who truly enjoys suffering for art.
Director Richard LaGravenese (P.S. I Love You) brings the hit
off-Broadway musical by Jason Robert Brown to the screen, and features
Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan as Cathy and Jamie, respectively. Ms.
Kendrick has become the go-to actress for musicals with Into the Woods
(as Cinderella) and the Pitch Perfect movies. She is a wonderful singer
and a fine actress. Mr. Jordan is best known for TV's "Smash" and for
"Newsies" on Broadway. He too is a talented singer.
Surprisingly, it's not the talented leads that provide the most
it's the story structure. As per the title, the story
follows the couple's relationship over a five year period. The opening
scene features Cathy reading and reacting to the break-up note left by
Jamie. The second scene features Jamie describing his joy when he first
falls for Cathy, as they romp in bed. See, Cathy's story goes from the
end to the beginning, while Jamie's story goes from the beginning to
intersecting only at the marriage proposal in the park. It's
a fascinating way to tell a story not just two perspectives, but also
in reverse order of each other!
The song lyrics act as the dialogue, and that's where the transition
from stage to screen falls a bit short. While the lyrics are clever and
adequately describe each relationship change, those same lyrics and the
non-stop singing, prevent the viewers from ever connecting to the
and more importantly, prevent us from understanding how
these two characters ever connected to each other. Rather than a love
story, it comes across as a moment of passion that turns into a
relationship between two people who don't have much in common and don't
particularly care for each other. And the real crux of the tension
stems from Jamie's skyrocketing novel writing career versus Cathy's
going-nowhere-but-Ohio acting career.
Cathy starts sad and ends happy, while Jamie starts happy (he found a
Shiksa princess!) and finds a way to end his misery (writing a Dear
Jane note). It's Sunset to Sunrise, and Sunrise to Sunset. The
"goodbye" finale is very creative and well done. This unusual story
structure is quite interesting, and the lyrics are sharp
lack of spirit in the music, and the 90 minutes of the same two voices
that prevent this from being something special.
