Our Modern Cinema series concludes with the perfect antidote to summer blockbuster season – a wise and sophisticated romantic-comedy for grown-ups. Clive Owen stars as a once-promising poet now teaching literature at a prep school, whose life is upended when a fiercely unsentimental abstract painter (Juliette Binoche) joins the faculty. Directed by Fred Schepisi (Roxanne, Six Degrees of Separation), and co-produced by former WFAA film critic Gary Cogill, Words and Pictures is a joyful celebration of life and love; literature and art; and the enduring power of opposites to attract.
