“There’s more than one way to take a man’s life...” and THE WORDS couldn’t be truer. For Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper), he’s achieved his every goal: a loving wife, critical success and a best-selling novel. The only problem is: he didn’t write it. Now, as his conscience starts to haunt him and his past wrongs are revealed, it’s difficult to tell fact from fiction. Zoë Saldana, Jeremy Irons, Olivia Wilde, Ben Barnes and Dennis Quaid star in this romantic drama that keeps you guessing until the very end.

Common Sense Says
Teen-friendly romance is thoughtful but falls short.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Words, some of which takes place in an earlier time period, leans heavily on the idea of consequence, a subject that can be weighty but is also of value for young teens learning to consider the impact of their decisions and behavior. Expect a bit of swearing (one "f--k," a few "s--t"s, etc.) and kissing/making out. There's also some drinking, mostly in social settings (though occasionally to excess), and smoking (accurate for the earlier era that some of the movie takes place in). An infant's death is devastating to his parents.
