Clive Owen (Closer) portrays Jack Marcus, a frustrated writer, who is working as a teacher at a prep school in director Fred Schepisi’s Words and Pictures. Owen stars opposite Juliette Binoche (Cosmopolis), a struggling artist/art teacher, and the two spark a school-wide debate over what’s more powerful, the written word or visual picture? The film will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, which takes place September 5-15, 2013.

Here’s a peek at some snaps from the set:
