Mara Reinstein reviews the five standout films of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival for US Weekly, and here’s what she has to say about The Last Five Years:

The Last 5 Years

Alrighty, Pitch Perfect and Smash fans, this one is dedicated to you. In this gem of a musical (based on a cult favorite off-Broadway show), Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan chronicle their up-and-down New York City romance via lovely original songs. And even amid their heartbreak and passion, Kendrick squeezes in a killer zinger about Russell Crowe’s vocals. Applauseworthy! (In theaters February 14).
