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.

I would rate "The Words" movie. 5 stars. ***** The critics evidently 'didn't get' the movie at all. It is a story, in a story in a story, so one has to pay attention. If you are 20 something, you might not be able to appreciate/like the movie, because you have not experienced enough of 'life' yet. Otherwise, it is a movie with a message, that everyone should definitely recognize. It is not just one love story. It is not just about someone stealing another person's words. It is about the human frailty in all of us. The actors all gave an excellent performance.. It is a very deep, emotional, thought provoking , poignant film, which I plan to see again, I rarely ever see a movie more than one time.. Dumb Critics! p.s. I saw it a second time 3 days later, and it was great. The musical score throughout the film was amazing.!


Saw the movie last night. It does show how one lie can end up turning into a huge one and impact so many lives. However, to me I felt like the movie didn't really give any resolution and I was just left with a huh? kind of feeling. The acting was really great and I think writers would probably be able to relate to this a lot more than us non-writers


My wife and I and her girlfriend went to see "The Words" last night. After reading a lot of reiviews...some very negative especially about the ending...I was curious about how I would evaluate this movie. I REALLY thought it was an outstanding movie. The story line was captivating and not at all difficult to follow. I thought the acting was terrific. And, in my opinion, the ending was very appropriate. My wife and her friend felt the same way. A great movie. I highly recommend it.


After a summer of entertainment aimed at feeding the adolescent need for expressions of violence and angry adventure, we are "treated" to the anguish of adults needing success and the decision-making that will bring it to them, regardless of the morality and courage necessary to conduct meaningful lives. It's the "tough" road to success versus an easy answer to solving your "problems."


I didn't know much about this movie going into it. I knew it was about a writer who finds an old book and passes it off as his own. However, that's just a small part of this intricately woven story of love and the profession of writing and storytelling. First, there's the past: an American GI in Paris falls in loves and experiences some truly difficult relationship traumas. He temporarily separates from his wife and pours his heart out on the page and completes a terrifically personal novel. The next storyline is the story within another book, which is essentially the main storyline of the movie, where a writer passes that American GI's novel as his own, sells it, and it becomes a huge success. The original author, the American GI, shows up to confront the fraud to further advance the story. The final layer, which serves to tie all the stories together, is of another author telling both stories. It sounds confusing, but it just works well as a thriller.
