Words and Pictures is a 2013 American drama film directed by Fred Schepisi. It was screened in the Gala Presentation section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.[2][3]


Dina and Jack are school teachers in an advanced public school. Dina teaches art but her ability to paint is severely diminished by rheumatoid arthritis. Jack teaches English but his job is at risk because he is an alcoholic. The two argue about whether words or pictures are more effective at conveying ideas and make this the focus of an upcoming school performance. Meanwhile, despite themselves, they are falling in love.
