The Words

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Well, how about that: a grown-up picture, lacking utterly in CGI and superheroes. And not a bad one at that. Dennis Quaid plays a novelist reading his latest work, The Words. It tells the story of a struggling novelist (Bradley Cooper) married to a woman (Zoe Saldana) with whom he honeymoons in Paris. She buys him an ancient satchel from a consignment shop, and it just so happens to contain an unpublished manuscript on the level of Hemingway. He passes it off as his own and hits the big time. Until the original author (Jeremy Irons) shows up.
