The new poster for The Words, a romantic drama starring Dominican actress Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Irons, is here. The film follows Cooper playing a young writer who passes off another author’s work as his own and deals with the consequences that inevitably arise. The Words is directed by debut directors Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal and will open September 7th.
Here’s the complete plot: Rory Jansen, a struggling writer, aspires to be the next great literary voice. When he discovers a lost manuscript in a weathered attaché case, he realizes he possesses something extraordinary that he desperately wishes he had created. Rory decides to pass the work off as his own and finally receives the recognition he desperately craves. However, he soon learns that living with his choice will not be as easy as he thought as he faces a moral dilemma that will make him take a hard look at the man he has become.
In their directorial debut, Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal have crafted a subtle tale that examines how overwhelming desire can lead to unforeseen and unwanted consequences. Bolstered by a strong cast, led by Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Irons, The Words adeptly assembles multiple narratives that reveal how one man’s lost legacy holds the life of another man captive.
