It was everything aspiring author Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper) needed to be. It was everything Dora Jansen (Zoë Saldana) knew he could be.

“Fuller. Truer. More honest.” Hearing a succinct validation of the words unfolding his heart-rending tale of love and loss from the woman he loved, trumped the that lay in wait. Bolstered by a stellar cast and told through multiple narratives, the romantic drama THE WORDS explores the devastating consequences when ambition is valued above love.

It could cost him everything, in ways he never anticipated. It would bring him everything, in ways he always anticipated.

There was just one problem. The words were not his. Rory's great American novel belonged to the voice of another.
Riding acclaim on the stolen work of an Old Man (JEREMY IRONS) proved more than an ethical breach. It silenced that man's public claim to his own life and the tragic choice he made as a Young Man (BEN BARNES) that would come to define him. Rory would find himself shadowing the Young Man's fate – overwhelming ambition fueled by the love of words more than the love that inspired them.

His life would play out on the pages of novelist Clay Hammond's (DENNIS QUAID) latest bestseller. But it is in Hammond's secret past that Daniella (OLIVIA WILDE), a seductive grad student captivated by his work, suspects the line between fiction and non- has been crossed.
