    The Words (2012)

    The old man's (Jeremy Irons) backstory is not very compelling. We are made to believe his banal tale of love and lost became more enthralling when written down in black and white, but I can't imagine how.

    The Dennis Quaid character, who we assume is an older version of Cooper's character in the future, tells the story, in another book, of what Cooper's character is going through in the present, or is that the past? At any rate, it's confusing and involves an annoying cat and mouse seduction of Olivia Wilde's character, who has no meaning to any story.
