English teacher Clive Owen and artist Juliette Binoche stage a “war” between Words and Pictures to re-engage their social-media obsessed students.
The pen may be mightier than the sword, but if a picture is worth a thousand words, who would win in a duel? A once-lauded poet, now prep school English teacher (Clive Owen) meets his cerebral and artistic match in the new art teacher (Juliette Binoche), herself a once-celebrated painter. Together they stage a “war” between Words and Pictures to re-engage their social-media obsessed students. This witty romantic drama celebrates chemistry, art and language with equal relish.
