Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan-Led THE LAST FIVE YEARS Movie Hits Theaters, VOD Today

RADiUS will premiere THE LAST 5 YEARS, Richard LaGravenese's (BEHIND THE CANDELABRA) big screen adaptation of the 2002 Off-Broadway musical by Tony Award winning composer and lyricist Jason Robert Brown, in theaters and on VOD today, February 13, 2015. Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan ("Smash") star in LaGravenese's highly anticipated film. THE LAST 5 YEARS celebrated its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall.

The film's two stars are no strangers to the musical community. Kendrick previously received a Tony Award nomination for HIGH SOCIETY, and is well known for her wildly popular role in PITCH PERFECT, as well as the blockbuster movie-musical INTO THE WOODs, and the upcoming PITCH PERFECT 2. She also had a top ten song on the US Billboard Hot 100 with "Cups" which peaked at #6 on the chart. Tony nominated Jordan, best known for his roles in the Tony Award winning musical Newsies and his scene stealing performance in "Smash", just finished a run in the Broadway-bound musical, FINDING NEVERLAND (a TWC Production).

THE LAST 5 YEARS was produced by Lauren Versel of Lucky Monkey Pictures, Kurt Deutsch of Sh-K-Boom Records and Janet Brenner. Richard LaGravenese is also a producer.

THE LAST FIVE YEARS is a musical chronicling a love affair and marriage taking place over a five year period. Jamie Wellerstein (Jordan) is a young, talented up and coming novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt (Kendrick), a struggling actress. Their story is told almost entirely through song. 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.
