The Words (Brian Klugman & Lee Sternthal)

This romantic drama follows young writer Rory Jansen who finally achieves long sought after literary success when he publishes the next great American novel. There is only one catch - he did not write it. As the past comes back to haunt Jansen, he 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.

Starring: Dennis Quaid, Jeremy Irons, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, J.K. Simmons, Olivia Wilde

My thoughts on this film: Do not watch 'The Words' unless you are prepared to do quite a bit of thinking - even after it is over.
Unlike other movies, it analyses the most important things in life. Anyone can take a different meaning from watching this film; in my humble opinion 'The Words' felt like an observation that you should reconsider your priorities in life, and things always happen for a reason - if you push fate, it will come back to haunt you.
The cast is also great; the only thing I have to point out is the ending, which felt like something was missing.
