Words and Pictures movie scene

Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen in Words and Pictures.

Juliette Binoche (Summer Hours) and Clive Owen (Trust) star in the 2013 romantic comedy Words and Pictures, directed by Australia’s great Fred Schepisi (The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith, Roxanne, A Cry in the Dark).

In the film, prep school English teacher Jack Marcus (Owen) meets his match in Dina Delsanto (Binoche) — an abstract painter, and new teacher on campus — and challenges her to a war between words and pictures…and, in the process, sparks an unlikely romance.

Uninspired plot synopsis that we gleaned from the equally uninspired press release aside, Words and Pictures received some solid press upon its limited theatrical release in May, 2014, with Entertainment Weekly proclaiming that the two stars had “a great Hepburn/Tracy rapport.”

The Blu-ray and DVD contain the following special features:

·      Audio commentary with director Fred Schepisi
·      “Behind-the-scenes of Words and Pictures” featurette
