WORDS AND PICTURES
2013, Roadside Attractions, 111 min, USA, Dir: Fred Schepisi

Alcohol and arthritis, respectively, have slowed the careers of writer Jack Marcus (Clive Owen) and painter Dina Delsanto (Juliette Binoche); the two now teach at an exclusive New England prep school. But both are re-energized when a debate rages across campus - which is stronger, words or images? Director Fred Schepisi’s skill in both of these areas has produced a romantic drama that’s as emotionally involving as it is thought-provoking. With Bruce Davison and Amy Brenneman.
