more than his words...and is a woman worth more than her pictures?

Words and Pictures is a 2013 American drama film directed by Fred Schepisi. It was screened in the Gala Presentation section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

Can a woman bring the sun out 

To warm his life up and make his love grow everyday..

Can a man bring the stars out to light the night up and make the darkness go away..

Reach to him if he can...

Dina (Juliette Binoche who has actually hand painted all of "Dina's" artwork herself) and Jack (Clive Owen) are school teachers in an advanced public school. Dina teaches art but her ability to paint is severely diminished by rheumatoid arthritis. Jack teaches English but his job is at risk because he is an alcoholic. The two argue about whether words or pictures are more effective at conveying ideas and make this the focus of an upcoming school performance. Meanwhile, despite themselves, they are falling in love.

But will they learn something about each other's art and ultimately what will they learn about each other...
