The Words: What if you achieved literary success with a didn't write?

I just wanted to share with you a movie that I'm excited about. If you're a writer or an author, you'll understand why I can't wait to see this film that opens in theaters September 21, 2012!

The Words is the official 2012 Sundance Film Festival selection about a young writer facing the consequences of choosing ambition over love. 

Starring Bradley Cooper, Oscar®-winner Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and ZoĆ« Saldana, the 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.
