  • A kind of Tracy/Hepburn rom-com with a "Dead Poets Society" backdrop and dollops of human failing for added drama, Words and Pictures stars Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche - a matchup that makes you want to like Fred Schepisi's film, even when it becomes impossible to do so. show more

    Love Clive Owen and am never disappointed. Saw the movie on Redbox yesterday and loved the movie, the cast, the story. Bill Levy, FL

    Loved it...such a nice relief from all the crappy films out including 22 Jump and Act Like a Man. Nicely written, cast, and directed with an intellectual undercarriage that most films today lack.
