The Last Five Years
First screened in June 2015
Director: Richard LaGravenese. Cast: Anna Kendrick, Jeremy Jordan, Natalie Knepp, Marceline Hugot. Screenplay: Richard LaGravenese (based on the stage musical by Jason Robert Brown).

Twitter Capsule: Complex temporal plotting, in service of two leads you don't want to spend five minutes with. Gruesomely shot.

VOR:   Musicals of off-Broadway, non-Phantom derivation are so rare that even an attempt raises an eyebrow, in a good way. But execution raises every brow in a bad way.
