Storyline Heading
Young writer Rory Jansen finally achieves long sought after literary success after publishing the next great American novel. There's only one catch - he didn't write it. As the past comes back to haunt him and his literary star continues to rise, Jansen is forced to confront the steep price that must be paid for stealing another man's work and for placing ambition and success above life's most fundamental three words.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Romantic - This is a talky drama with a somewhat involved story within a story within a story structure. The main thread stars Bradley Cooper, with Dennis Quaid in a framing story. The women of the film, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde, have distinctly secondary roles to the men, which also includes Jeremy Irons in a meaty role. Language and adult subject matter make this film not one either appropriate nor of interest to children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average The performances, excepting perhaps Olivia Wilde's odd turn, are solid, and the central story never loses our attention...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...I enjoyed the settings, the periods and the acting. I can't go so far as to say I cared about the story, particularly after it became clear that its structure was too clever by half.

USA Today Full Review
Average The concept would have worked better if there was a real element of mystery.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It was everything aspiring author Rory Jansen (BRADLEY COOPER) needed to be. It was everything Dora Jansen (ZOE SALDANA) knew he could be.

"Fuller. Truer. More honest." Hearing a succinct validation of the words unfolding his heart-rending tale of love and loss from the woman he loved, trumped the moral conundrum that lay in wait.

It could cost him everything, in ways he never anticipated. It would bring him everything, in ways he always anticipated. There was just one problem. The words were not his. Rory's great American novel belonged to the voice of another.

Riding acclaim on the stolen work of an Old Man (JEREMY IRONS) proved more than an ethical breach. It silenced that man's public claim to his own life and the tragic choice he made as a Young Man (BEN BARNES) that would come to define him. Rory would find himself shadowing the Young Man's fate - overwhelming ambition fueled by the love of words more than the love that inspired them.

His life would play out on the pages of novelist Clay Hammond's (DENNIS QUAID) latest bestseller. But it is in Hammond's secret past that Daniella (OLIVIA WILDE), a seductive grad student captivated by his work, suspects the line between fiction and non- has been crossed.
