In this biographical drama we follow Professor James Murray (Mel Gibson) who in 1857 undertook the ambitious project of compiling a dictionary of the English language. During the work, he received unexpected help from the mentally ill doctor William Minor (Sean Penn) who submitted thousands of suggestions. The result was The Oxford English Dictionary, considered by many to be the English language bible.
