I would rate "The Words" movie. 5 stars. *****
The critics evidently 'didn't get' the movie at all.
It is a story, in a story in a story, so one has to pay attention.
If you are 20 something, you might not be able to appreciate/like the movie, because you have not experienced enough of 'life' yet. Otherwise, it is a movie with a message, that everyone should definitely recognize.
It is not just one love story. It is not just about someone stealing another person's words. It is about the human frailty in all of us.
The actors all gave an excellent performance..
It is a very deep, emotional, thought provoking , poignant film, which I plan to see again, I rarely ever see a movie more than one time..
p.s. I saw it a second time 3 days later, and it was great.
The musical score throughout the film was amazing.!

Four of us attended and good thing. We had a discussion as the playwrights were scrolling. The movie has a few great lessons for life! Unfortunately, it confused an older lady after the movie in which we had to explain it to her. I like variety in movies, so I thought it was good.

Saw the movie last night. It does show how one lie can end up turning into a huge one and impact so many lives. However, to me I felt like the movie didn't really give any resolution and I was just left with a huh? kind of feeling. The acting was really great and I think writers would probably be able to relate to this a lot more than us non-writers

My wife and I and her girlfriend went to see "The Words" last night. After reading a lot of reiviews...some very negative especially about the ending...I was curious about how I would evaluate this movie. I REALLY thought it was an outstanding movie. The story line was captivating and not at all difficult to follow. I thought the acting was terrific. And, in my opinion, the ending was very appropriate. My wife and her friend felt the same way. A great movie. I highly recommend it.

After a summer of entertainment aimed at feeding the adolescent need for expressions of violence and angry adventure, we are "treated" to the anguish of adults needing success and the decision-making that will bring it to them, regardless of the morality and courage necessary to conduct meaningful lives. It's the "tough" road to success versus an easy answer to solving your "problems."
