Let's see Words and Pictures

Prep school English teacher Jack Marcus (OWEN) laments his students' obsession with social media and good grades rather than engaging with the power of the written word. A one-time literary star, Jack has not published in years filling his spare time with drink versus the art of language.

He meets his match in Dina Delsanto (BINOCHE) — an abstract painter and new teacher on campus, who was once celebrated for her art. From the start, the two flirt and provoke each other with equal relish.

With a performance review looming and his teaching job on the line, Jack hatches an inspired plan for galvanizing student interest in their studies: he declares a war between Words and Pictures, confident that the former can convey greater meaning than the latter. Dina and her art students accept the challenge between Jack and his English students, and the battle lines are drawn...

    My father has been missing for 20+ years; we went up to the attic for something and there he was! So, we'll be celebrating Father's Day after all. Next time...

      He ate like a horse! He'd bridled at the suggestion we have oat-veggie burgers and apple dumplings for dessert, but we offered him a carrot and he came right around.

    Since I like both words and pictures, I would really like to see this movie. However, I'll be out of town this weekend visiting parents.

    I'm planning on getting some dinner after the movie. I was thinking about Jerusalem Cafe, Korma Sutra or Thai Place, all favorites of mine. All are welcome to join me.
