A layered romantic drama, The Words, stars Bradley Cooper, Oscar®-winner Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and Zoë Saldana. After years of struggling, ambitious writer Rory Jansen (Cooper) finally achieves literary prominence when his first published novel becomes a smashing critical and commercial success. There's only one catch — he didn't write it. As his star continues to rise, Rory is suddenly confronted by the novel's true author who is about to teach Jensen that there are consequences for stealing another man's words.
