Jason Bateman (IDENTITY THIEF) makes his feature directorial debut with BAD WORDS. In the comedy, Mr. Bateman portrays Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old man seeking catharsis in his life. He seizes the ideal that this will come for him through...the National Spelling Bee; after discovering a loophole in the rules, Guy zealously joins the competition and easily outpaces the pre-teen field in match after match. As reporter Jenny Widgeon (Kathryn Hahn of 'Afternoon Delight') delves into Guy's story, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely friendship with a competitor, awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand of 'Homeland'), which may spell things differently for his future.
