TOH! has the exclusive poster debut for director Fred Schepisi's upcoming romantic dramedy "Words and Pictures," starring Juliette Binoche as an art teacher rivaling Clive Owen's English teacher. She has rheumatoid arthritis, and he has a drinking problem.

Here's the official synopsis:

The film arrives May 23. A witty romantic drama, WORDS & PICTURES stars the engaging duo of Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen working together on-screen for the first time.  Prep school English teacher Jack Marcus (OWEN) laments his students' obsession with social media and good grades rather than engaging with the power of the written word.  A one-time literary star, Jack has not published in years filling his spare time with drink versus the art of language.   He meets his match in Dina Delsanto (BINOCHE) — an abstract painter and new teacher on campus, who was once celebrated for her art.  From the start, the two flirt and provoke each other with equal relish.

With a performance review looming and his teaching job on the line, Jack hatches an inspired plan for galvanizing student interest in their studies: he declares a war between Words and Pictures, confident that the former can convey greater meaning than the latter.  Dina and her art students accept the challenge between Jack and his English students, and the battle lines are drawn.

The film hits theaters May 23. Watch our video interview with Juliette Binoche at Toronto, where the film debuted last Fall, here. Poster is below.
