You don’t have to wait any longer for a first look at the hotly-anticipated big screen adaptation of The Last 5 Years, as a new clip has been released by EW.

The video, which clocks in at just over a minute and a half, sees the couple at a happy place in their relationship, with Anna Kendrick’s Cathy serenading her beau, featuring lots of kisses, touches, and smiles. The Last 5 Years is yet another addition to Kendrick’s growing musical profile, following Pitch Perfect, its highly-anticipated sequel, as well as the upcoming Christmas Day release of Into The Woods, and her voice is once again shown off in this new clip.

The latest directorial effort from P.S. I Love You’s romantic mastermind Richard LaGravenese is an adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s 2002 off-broadway show starring Norbert Leo Butz and Sherie Rene Scott.

The Drama Desk Award winner for Best Music and Lyrics is told mostly in song (a la Les Miserables), and follows struggling actress Cathy and her partner, budding novelist Jamie, played by Smash’s Jeremy Jordan.

The story is told from two different timelines, from each of the respective partners’ eyes, with Cathy’s story beginning at the end of the five-year relationship, whereas Jamie’s opens at the start and moves along chronologically. The perspective’s collide in the middle with Jamie’s proposal. Not to worry if this may sound confusing, as Kendrick told EW, “We were really worried about making sure that people were following the timeline of it, and actually it all works.”

The film made its world premiere at TIFF yesterday, and has already been picked up for North American distribution by the Weinstein Company’s label RADiUS, and expected to have a Valentine’s Day 2015 release – which solidifies my plans for that most romantic of days!
