The Words, a romantic drama, follows young writer Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper), who 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. With Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and Zoë Saldana.

“Donkey,” a new exhibition at the Benyamini Contemporary Ceramics Center, outlines a syntax shared by artists from various fields and varying backgrounds who create ceramic works and installations in diverse materials.

This apparition from the past, a specter, a faint flicker, furnished the conceptual and material foundation for the exhibition.
