Story


Starring Bradley Cooper, Oscar winner Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and Zoe Saldana, the layered romantic drama "The Words" follows young writer Rory Jansen who finally achieves long sought after literary success after publishing the next great American novel. There's only one catch - he didn't write it. As the past comes back to haunt him and his literary star continues to rise, Jansen is forced to confront the steep price that must be paid for stealing another man's work and for placing ambition and success above life's most fundamental three words.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it won't be hard at all to choose to skip this film and instead to look for a good book to read..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..ironically, the dialogue in The Words is its chief failing..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..a lush but fumbling literary melodrama outfitted with an attractive, generations-spanning cast and a puzzle box of three competing narratives..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
