If you know me at all, you know I'm a huge musical theatre fan and The Last Five Years is one of my favorites. This Off-Broadway Jason Robert Brown musical chronicles 5 years of a failed relationship entirely through song--the female and male telling the story from different perspectives. I've been a bit skeptical of the idea of it as a movie (especially since the musical only has two characters, but the movie seems to have a lot of them), but I'm still excited to see it--especially with Anna Kendrick as Cathy. If it has most of the original music, it'll make you feel all the feels, especially if you've had a failed serious relationship.
EW recently released a sneak peek of the film, which is due out on Valentine's. The clip they picked is totally random, but it still makes me a little excited. I've included the film clip here and the entire song from the musical below it. Showing a song in the middle is very strange, especially as a sneak peek...but whatever.
