AEV and AEA Special Film Night: Words and Pictures. 31 July 2014

Words and PicturesA new film by internationally acclaimed Australian filmmaker Fred Schepisi starring Clive Owen (Closer, Gosford Park, The Bourne Identity) as an eccentric English teacher who challenges the charismatic new art teacher, played by Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, Chocolate, Three colours trilogy), in a schoolwide debate over which is more powerful – the Word or the Picture.

A witty and intelligent screenplay explores the value of good education set against a flamboyant courtship that develops between the two teachers. Smart, inspirational and entertaining, Words & Pictures is an uplifting and crowd-pleasing romantic comedy drama that will spark much audience debate about the question it poses.
