06 Nov Cinema: Words & Pictures
Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 7pm and Thursday, Nov. 13 at 2:30pm. $12/person.
The setting is a New England prep school where Jack Marcus (Clive Owen) is a curmudgeonly, middle-aged alcoholic fallen from grace poet who teaches at the school. Dina Delsanto (Juilette Binoche) joins the faculty as the new art instructor, as she too had to step down from a brilliant painting career because of her rheumatoid arthritis. They battle each other using words and pictures as their armament. An added bonus is watching Binoche doing the actual paintings, as she is a very accomplished artist and all the paintings in the film were created by her. Directed by Fred Schepisi, written by Gerald DiPego in English. Starring Clive Owen, Juliet Binoche, Amy Brenneman and Bruce Davison. See film poster on this website, Movies tab.
