Following its world premiere as a Gala Presentation at the Toronto International Film Festival, Roadside Attractions has acquired US rights to director Fred Schepisi's adult romance, Words and Pictures, written by Gerald Di Pego and starring Oscar nominee Clive Owen (Killer Elite, Blood Ties) and Oscar winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, Chocolat).
  
A writer whose talent has dried up (Owen) and an artist (Binoche), struggling to paint as her body betrays her, clash at the school where they teach, sparking both a flamboyant courtship and a school-wide war: which is more powerful, the Word or the Picture?
 
"Fred Schepisi's charming film 'Words and Pictures' features great performances by Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche -- in an uplifting, crowd-pleasing film about teachers who change the lives of both their students and each other with their passions for learning, life and the arts," said Roadside Attractions' co-President Howard Cohen.
 
Producer Curtis Burch said, "After having received such fantastic responses from audiences in Toronto, we are thrilled to have made a deal with Howard Cohen and Eric d'Arbeloff and their world-class Roadside Attractions. Our movie is in excellent hands."
 
The film is produced by Latitude Productions' Curtis Burch in association with Dallas-based Lascaux Films. Nancy Rae Stone serves as executive producer.
