Words and Pictures

words and pictures

I watched a number of movies over the holiday. Here is one I enjoyed that is on blu ray/DVD. It stars Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen as a painter and writer whose talents have been stressed, his by drinking, hers by illness. When she joins the staff at the school where he teaches, a competition ensues to see which is the greater art form (words or pictures) , inspiring both the teachers and their students to push past their limitations. It is a little salty and a little sweet making it pleasant overall.
