Fred Schepisi’s adult romantic comedy Words And Pictures had its world premiere as a Gala Presentation in Toronto where Roadside Attractions acquired it for the U.S. Written by Gerald Di Pego, it stars Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche, respectively as a writer whose talent has dried up, and an artist struggling to paint as her body betrays her (Binoche’s own artwork features). The two clash at the prep school where they teach, sparking a flamboyant courtship and a school-wide war over which is more powerful: the word or the picture. Binoche, who won an Oscar for The English Patient, hasn’t been in too many English-language pics of late, much less a comedy, so this looks like a charming departure. Speaking of departures, she’s up in Warner and Legendary’s Godzilla which opens May 16, ahead of Words And Pictures‘ bow on May 23.
