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.

When Rory find and reads the Old Man's manuscript, the first page shown on-screen is actually an excerpt from Ernest Hemingway's memoir, "A Moveable Feast", discussing one of his early short stories called "Up in Michigan". Nearly all of Hemingway's other early works were lost because the suitcase his wife had packed them in was stolen from a train in Paris when she left in unattended for a few minutes; the Old Man's story clearly parallels this event.

This film is about a young struggling writer who makes it big with a manuscript that he did not write.
"The Words" tells the tale of a struggling writer who has to face moral choices after stealing a manuscript. Bradley Cooper carries the role well, and he portrays the internal struggle very well. It is a welcomed change that Bradley Cooper portrays a serious and emotionally tormented role. The scene of his attempt to rectify things in the greenhouse is haunting. Zoe Saldana shines as well as the supportive wife, her plethora of emotions is so natural and convincing. They make a good on screen couple. The Bradley Cooper subplot is quite predictable, but the connection between Bradley Cooper and Dennis Quaid is not immediately apparent. This extra layer gives "The Words" more depth. I think "The Words" has many fine performances, and deserves to be seen.
