The Last Five Years is the film adaptation a Jason Robert Brown off-Broadway musical, which charts the rise and fall of a five-year relationship from two different perspectives. Kendrick plays Cathy, whose POV starts at the end of the relationship and goes backward, while Jamie (Smash's Jeremy Jordan) sings about the relationship from beginning to end.
The reviews out of Toronto — where the film screened in September — were lukewarm, with Indiewire calling it "too much of a good thing," while Collider complained that the structure was "confusing." But, the muted reaction didn't stop critics from heaping praise on Kendrick, who continues to show why she's quickly become Hollywood's go-to musical lead.
The Last Five Years hits theaters on February 15. Watch the trailer below.
