The Words is a powerful, intelligent drama that keeps the audience guessing until the very end. Bradley Cooper plays a struggling writer who faces a moral dilemma – and his decision has a long-reaching impact on the various characters. Zoe Saldana plays the wife – elegant, passionate, trusting. Jeremy Irons is the mysterious Old Man who turns the writer’s life upside down.
This is the kind of movie you end up talking about all the way home. There are so many “what if”s and unanswered questions that the viewer’s perception of events plays a key role in the overall experience of the film. Compelling.
