Watch Anna Kendrick Sing in the First Glimpse of Musical-Turned-Movie ‘The Last Five Years’
Hollywood is turning yet another Off-Broadway musical into a movie. This time, it’s Tony Award-winning musical The Last Five Years, which tells the story of Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress, and Jamie Wellerstein, an up-and-coming writer. The two become lovers and then husband and wife, but their relationship falls apart. In the movie version, the talented singer and actress Anna Kendrick plays Cathy. In this first glimpse, Kendrick sings “I Can Do Better Than That” to her lover, a song about how much he means to her. Kendrick’s vocal talents came to light after Pitch Perfect, a movie about a cappella group competitions.
