Academy Award®-nominated writer-director Richard LaGravenese (“The Fisher King”) will introduce his latest film, “The Last 5 Years” as the Centerpiece for the 50th Chicago International Film Festival (October 9 – 23). Starring Academy Award® nominee Anna Kendrick and Tony Award nominee Jeremy Jordan, “The Last 5 Years” will screen Wednesday, October 15, at the AMC River East 21 (322 E. Illinois St.) at 6 p.m.
The Humbling, The Last 5 Years tapped for opening night
The fest will be bookended with two other TIFF alums, Barry Levinson’s The Humbling and Richard LaGravenese’s The Last 5 Years. Adapted from Philip Roth’s 2009 novel and starring Al Pacino and Greta Gerwig, The Humbling will open the fest on Oct. 23 in an early evening slot, followed by LaGravenese’s adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s musical of the same name, which stars Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan as a man and woman who relay the story of their relationship in reverse order.
