Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, Into the Woods) and Jeremy Jordan (TV's "Smash," Broadway's "Newsies") star in The Last Five Years, an adaptation of the popular musical of the same name. Jamie Wallerstein (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.

They meet in the center when Jamie proposes.
