Words And Pictures
It's not every day that you'll find arthouse mainstay Juliette Binoche appearing in what looks like a very familiar rom-com, but perhaps that's part of the allure of "Words And Pictures." And with Clive Owen opposite to woo the actress, one certainly can't complain about the casting.

"I don't like to go down the same road with films, I don't like to repeat myself," director Fred Schepisi told us recently over the phone from Australia. Indeed looking over his filmography, one can't deny the diversity of his work in a career that has spanned more than four decades. From bracing drama ("A Cry In The Dark") to a John Le Carré based thriller ("The Russia House") to comedy ("Roxanne," "I.Q.," "Mr. Baseball"), Schepisi has worked with talent ranging from rising actors that would go on to become worldwide superstars (Will Smith in "Six Degrees Of Separation") to bonafide legends (Paul Newman in "Empire Falls"). And for his latest, "Words And Pictures," which premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival this week, Schepisi is once again trying something different.

Saoirse Ronan, How I Live Now
As if the 2013 lineup for the Toronto International Film Festival could not get any more stacked and outstanding, here comes another batch of titles that are sure to send the schedules of those attending into what will likely be a ridiculous slate of back-to-back-to-back-to-back movie days. But who's complaining?

Man, talk about a movie title that is going to be a pain to Google. Fred Schepisi ("Roxanne," "Mr. Baseball," "The Eye Of The Storm") is lining up his next movie, the blandly titled "Word And Pictures," but luckily his two leads are much livelier.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Australian director Fred Schepisi was something of a big deal. The 73-year-old filmmaker got his start back in Oz with 1976's "The Devil's Playground," made his U.S. debut with the underrated Western "Barbarosa," and went on to make acclaimed, successful pictures like "Roxanne," "A Cry In The Dark," "The Russia House" and "Six Degrees Of Separation," as well as a few that didn't quite connect in the same way, like "I.Q." and "A Fish Called Wanda" semi-sequel "Fierce Creatures." The filmmaker's been relatively quiet in the last ten years, with 2003's Michael/Kirk/Cameron Douglas disaster "It Runs In The Family" and 2005's acclaimed HBO drama "Empire Falls," which featured Paul Newman's final live-action performance, as his only output.
