Raise hands who is an aspiring author, penniless and with writer’s block? I raised both hands. But Hollywood makes it much more…”beautiful” in The Words where you are Bradley Cooper, and have a girlfriend who look like Zoe Saldana.
The Words tells the story of a writer who at the peak of his literary success, discovers the price he must pay for stealing another man’s work. After being accused of plagiarmis, our writer will start losing everything just as fast as he gain it.
Based on the trailer, Cooper’s character, a struggling novelist, steals a manuscripts penned decades earlier by an author who is wrestling with many of the same demons. As the trailer show it, they have the same “life.” Some scenes are very similar.
Honestly, I didn’t understand what role are Dennis Quaid and Olive Wilde playing. A side story maybe? The surrounding doesn’t look like an older version of Jeremy Irons story. But I might be wrong.
Sure the stellar cast will get the attention of many viewers. Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Ben Barnes, Ron Rifkin, Quaid and Olivia Wilde. Though it also tells the story of many struggling aspiring authors who are having a hard time having something published.
What do you think of The Words trailer? Movie is set to be released September 21st.
