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