This film is about a young poet who falls in love with a publisher who is HIV positive.
It is difficult to make a film about poetry, as poem recitals can hardly be described as exciting and visually stimulating. "Fighting Words" tries to make it more interesting by having controversial and provocative story lines. Though I applaud the filmmakers for their hard work, but "Fighting Words" is still rather underwhelming. It is not visually pleasing, and the pacing is rather slow. It is also unfortunate that many of the "poems" in the final slam are too vulgar and gross for the literary passionates. The final result is that "Fighting Words" does not appeal to romantic comedy viewers nor poetry lovers.
