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.Written by

When the old man is talking to Rory in the park the camera is showing his right side and he holds a half burned cigarette in his right hand. During the same conversation the old man then brings up a freshly lit cigarette in his left hand. See more »
The US theatrical version was slightly censored for a PG-13 rating, removing several instances of strong language, and re-edited for shorter running time of 97 minutes. The US Blu-ray and DVD contain a 102 minute extended cut that restores these alterations, and several international theatrical releases (such as the UK), are based on this version. See more »
This film is a rare and brilliant combination of book and movie. You will see this movie like reading a book, just Your imagination will be rest, replaced with this lovely pictures and actors. Words and frames will flow smoothly together before Your eyes, like a big, calm river but with volume, deepness and strenght. The narrator (good choice for Dennis Quaid, especially for His voice) will read for You, Jeremy Irons ("the old man"-a wonderful play of course), Bradley Cooper (just slightly under the other two great actors), Dennis Quaid, Zoe Saldana (good enough), Olivia Wilde (bad choice), Ben Barnes (nice play) and the others, will told the story in a great acting. Highly recommended for film and book lovers too. Beside the good story and acting, what I like most in "The words" is the words.
