What’s Worth Watching: The Last Five Years
The Last Five Years, Available on VOD
It’s Valentine’s Day, so why not celebrate by watching the disintegration of a five-year relationship, told through gorgeous songs sung by Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan? Kendrick’s Cathy is a struggling actress; Jordan’s Jamie is a precocious writer. The two meet, fall in love, get married, and get divorced, but we experience Cathy’s perspective from heartbreaking end to exhilarating beginning, while Jamie starts deep in the throes of love. If the meeting of their stories—the one time they sing the same song together—doesn’t reduce you to a puddle of tears and feelings, you may not be human.
