Sundance 2012: 'The Words' review

I think I'm really starting to turn the corner on Bradley Cooper. Where once he did nothing for me, now I'm enjoying his onscreen presence, whether it was in last year's Limitless or in his new film, The Words. The literary thriller got picked up by CBS Films here at Sundance, and it's the sort of airport-novel flick that ought to play well with audiences. The Words is all about its story-within-a-story cleverness, and it's executed in a fun, escapist way. My review is up at Screen International.
