Bradley Cooper gets serious as an ambitious writer who passes off someone else's work as his own in this romantic drama. The Words casts Bradley as Rory Jansen, a struggling writer who finally achieves literary success after publishing what is called The Next Great American Novel. The only catch? He didn't write it. When the original author surfaces (Jeremy Irons), Jansen is forced to confront his choices and decide whether it's more important to keep up the lie or come clean. The Words also stars Zoe Saldana, Dennis Quaid, Ben Barnes and Olivia Wilde.
