Words and Pictures is a charming rom-com starting Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche. Clive Owen is a rakish charming English teacher at a prep school in what looks like New England. Jack Marcus is a high functioning alcoholic whose job is on the line. Jack was a upcoming writer who has cease publishing new works and is going through the motions with his honors English classes. Juliette Binoche, playing against type, is an ice cold artist who joins the staff as a honors art teacher. Dina Delsanto lights a spark in Jack and what ensues is an inspiring “battle” between the Arts and English classes. This battle invigorates everyone involved. Valerie Tian (Emily), Bruce Davison (Walt) and Navid Negahban (Rashid) co-stars. In this delightful Spring flick. This is one of the strongest roles Clive Owen delivers in a while and he is worth the price of admission.
