Synopsis: 

Jack Marcus (CLIVE OWEN) and Dina Delsanto (JULIETTE BINOCHE) both could –once – but now, the writer and artist each face a devastating struggle that challenges their ability to create. Having shown great promise as an author and poet, Jack is a charismatic English teacher at Croyden, an elite, New England prep school where he lives, breathes and speaks his love of language.  The only problem is, he can’t actually write anymore.  He’s lost his mojo.

Dina is a gifted and acclaimed artist who hasn’t lost her muse.  It’s her body that’s betrayed her: rheumatoid arthritis is limiting her physical ability to paint and literally taking the brushes out of her hands.  She takes the teaching job at Croyden to support herself and be closer to family, from which she’ll require increasing help.

Dina’s reputation has preceded her.  She’s known to be a little cold – at her previous school they called her “The Icicle.”  But when Jack meets her, a small spark ignites and he is relentless in his attempt to melt her façade.  At every opportunity, he tries to engage her in his perpetual word game.  But when he learns the art teacher has told their students that words are “traps” and “lies,” he is hurt to the quick and declares full-out war.  The gauntlet for a school-wide competition of words vs. pictures is thrown and students and faculty (BRUCE DAVISON) choose their sides.

While his students adore him, the Croyden administration (NAVID NEGAHBAN, AMY BRENNEMAN) is less than impressed by Jack’s recent performance.  His own work hasn’t been published in years, the school literary magazine has grown lackluster, and there are reported incidents of Jack being drunk in public – especially problematic in a small-knit community.

While Jack’s magazine and very job are being threatened, the students at Croyden are alive and energized by the war between words and pictures.  Dina is inspired as well, and explores new ways of painting adapted to her physical challenges.  And it looks like true romance might blossom between Jack and Dina.

But the symbolic debate of words and pictures becomes a very real one when an image emerges that harms a student (VALERIE TIAN).  Dina’s illness takes a turn for the worse and her return to painting meets catastrophic results.  And Jack’s drinking problem escalates, threatening his career, family and future.  Will words or pictures ultimately prevail, or is something else at stake?

      I am so sorry that you missed it. It was a pleasure meeting you & talking for a bit at the Dodger game. If you want I can lead a hike for the group if there is ever an open date that you want to fill. Weekends are best for me. Busy most evenings after working. But never too busy to cancel to hike.

    Next time, we can ALL be wearing goofy T-shirts that say meetup or Adventures in Random Fun. I have many friends in low places (some of those are reading this right now,) that screen shirts. Easy to do and a minimal cost. Wear until we gather the whole group then change into more suitable clothing for the event.
    I hope Jason will NOT be planning any trips to a nudist colony, then we will be screwed. We probably will be laughing or crying to much. I enjoy everything that he throws up on the wall. The Terminator show in Hwood was the shit. I would go back again, with my raincoat of course. A hiker never goes anywhere without rain gear.

    Great movie. Only caught up with one person from our group and one from another group. With no host, there is no way to organize. But fun anyway.

    GREAT movie. I love Clive's acting. He was a great bad guy in "Inside Man." Julliette had a wonderful European accent. The artist in me really bonded with her character. I have been known - not lately to hobble around on a bum leg, too. She dumped the cane in the end and Mr Marks got himself right as well.
