The Last Five Years

The Last Five Years

In New York, a struggling actress and a successful writer sing about their failed marriage from two perspectives.

The Last 5 Years by Tony award winning composer and lyricist Jason Robert Brown is a musical deconstruction of a love affair and a marriage taking place over a five year period. Jamie Wellerstein is a young, talented up and coming Jewish novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt, a Shiksa Goddess struggling actress. Their story is told almost entirely through songs using an intercutting time line device; 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. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Liesl E (ag) wrote: What an odd, raunchy little movie. Not without its moments, however.

Heather M (es) wrote: A story of a great friendship that hits a rough patch when a guy gets involved. The ending is beautiful and perfect for this movie.

Zahid M (ag) wrote: Nice movie. I was surprised to note that I had missed this movie for so long.. A good watch. Entertaining and thrilling !

David W (au) wrote: Too short, but worth watching

Jedo D (de) wrote: This was a great film, funny and well shot. I think it was a bit too smart and too subtle for the average audience. There are no laugh-out-loud jokes (though I did) and this crime comedy formula has been done before, which may be what is putting the critics off, but it is still a very cute and well made film if taken on its own merit.

Jason P (it) wrote: Yet another very good movie slammed by pompous critics who think their opinions are valuable. One of my favorite movies.

Mike M (it) wrote: A basic adventure/melodrama (if there is such a thing). Standing on it's own, not a very good film, but as an accompaniment to the book, it gives a nice supporting chronology and visuals.

Kenneth L (gb) wrote: The poster for this movie makes it look like a comedy, but I'm not convinced that it is. It's more of a dark drama that starts as a straightforward revenge fantasy before eventually throwing some morally confusing twists in your face and running away. It's more troubling and introspective than it is funny. The movie is a satire, but one without laughs. The story alternates between flashbacks, in which we see a young assistant (Frank Whaley) begin working for an abusive, short-tempered movie producer (Kevin Spacey), and the present, in which the assistant has tied up the producer and is torturing him with an apparent intent to eventually kill him. The basic dynamic is similar to the one in the much later film Horrible Bosses, also with Spacey, but this one is much less obviously humorous than that one.Kevin Spacey is typically brilliant and intense as the producer, who at first is horrifically cruel, but later is revealed to have a tragic backstory and who is able to make a cogent, if not persuasive, defense of himself. This might be the first of Spacey's long series of portrayals of power-mad dickheads, and it's the sort of role he was born to play - consider also Horrible Bosses, Casino Jack, Superman Returns, and the Netflix TV show House of Cards. Frank Whaley, probably best known today as "Do-they-speak-English-in-what? Brett" from Pulp Fiction, is very good as the assistant, but the character ends up being so unappealing that maybe this is what kept him from getting more lead roles in the future.The movie is a black-hearted satire that ultimately has no redeeming characters and no happy ending. It's quite cynical, and it's clearly making fun of the Hollywood system, but it doesn't have any actual jokes or comedic moments. I guess what humor there is in the movie comes purely from its dark irony and reversals of fortune. I wouldn't say this is a bad movie - the performances are really good and it's decently well-made - but it's not really a fun one, and not quite how it's advertised to be. It didn't make me laugh, but I didn't dislike it either.

Steve R (ca) wrote: A silly comedy that hasn't aged well. It passes the time, but not particularly pleasantly.

Scott M (ru) wrote: Dated movie. Many scenes where the movie drags. But I still enjoy it to this day because we all want to be Charles Bronson and take on the evil in the world.

Stephen J (br) wrote: This might be the strangest movie I have ever seen. Mind boggling on every possible level. It is hard to put my feelings about this film into words.

Linda Mary C (mx) wrote: Has anyone seen this movie???

Elsa W (ru) wrote: "Well, let me tell you something. You're a forgetful old fool. Any woman's worth everything that any man has to give: anguish, ecstasy, faith, jealousy, love, hatred, life or death. Don't you see that's the whole excuse for our existence? It's what makes the whole thing possible and tolerable." Classic.
