After finding a brilliant unpublished book in an old briefcase, wannabe writer Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper) decides to claim it's his work - but his choice sets events in motion that have him facing an ethical quandary he could never have expected.

That was the third movie about writers in less than a month (Ruby Sparks and The Perks of Being a Wallflower), so I long hesitated to watch that one. I guess it was a good idea, the construction was also interesting, but puzzling the story so much made to movie look like it didn't finish really. It has a twist in the end to justify it but still, the movie ends so abruptly it feels incomplete. The performances are good, the wording well thought, perhaps I enjoyed the journey so much I would have liked to know more of the life of Rory Jansen over the twenty year gap after the publishing of the book...
