“The Last 5 Years” First Movie Poster

A theatrical poster has been released for Richard LaGravanese’s upcoming feature film adaptation of the Jason Robert Brown musical “The Last 5 Years.” The poster was released on the film’s Facebook page.

The story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hyatt, a struggling actress. The show uses a form of storytelling in which Cathy’s story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie’s is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met). The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle as their timelines intersect.

If you’ve never heard the music, do yourself a favor and buy the album. It’s wonderful, funny, and very moving. Poignant, to say the least. One of my favorites! I’m excited about this film adaptation — are you?
