The lone 12/24 Blu-ray/DVD release: The Words

The Words
Bradley Cooper may be getting the most attention of his career for his laudable turn in Silver Linings Playbook, but his performance in this film is an overlooked gem about a writer struggling with his own morals. In a story-within-a-story narrated by a successful author (Dennis Quaid), Cooper plays a desperate man who stumbles upon an old, unpublished masterpiece manuscript in a briefcase, which he plagiarizes and rides to success, putting his relationships with self-image and his wife (Zoe Saldana) at risk. Olivia Wilde is a stunner as an acolyte who approaches the Quaid character in a dark night of the soul. Extras include an extended edition and a slew of behind-the-scenes featurettes that examine the movie's making and characters.

A screener was provided by the studios for review.
