'Clouds of Sils Maria' trailer: Art imitates life for Juliette Binoche -- VIDEO

In a new trailer from Cannes, Juliette Binoche plays Maria Enders, an actress whose entire life is changed by a single role — the role that once made her famous, which is now being played by Jo-Ann Ellis (Chloe Grace Moretz) in a new production. Also in the mix is Enders’ personal assistant, Val (Kristen Stewart), with whom she shares a very intimate bond.

Directed by Olivier Assayas, Clouds of Sils Maria is about three women, one play, and lots of complicated relationships.

Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche make love and war in 'Words and Pictures' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In an age where romantic-comedies are practically extinct, Words and Pictures stands out as throwback to the kind of movie that audiences used to love. Clive Owen plays Jack Marcus, an English teacher at an elite private school who’s maybe overstayed his welcome. Once, he was a celebrated writer in his own right, but now, he’s a grump who thinks very little of the new generation of in-the-box students. Nudging him out of his rut is Dina Delsanto, the school’s new art teacher played by Juliette Binoche. A renowned artist who’s suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, Dina inadvertently rouses Jack by scoffing at the limitations of the written word in her art lectures. That’s all Jack needs to challenge her to a personal contest — words versus pictures — and it quickly escalates into a school-wide civil war.

It’s the latest film from Australian director Fred Schepisi, who boasts an eclectic resume of films ranging from Roxanne to A Cry in the Dark to Six Degrees of Separation. With Words and Pictures set to open in U.S. theaters on May 23, the 74-year-old director talks to EW about the film (see an exclusive clip below), as well as working with some of Hollywood’s most legendary movie stars.

'Words and Pictures' trailer: Clive Owen is ready for love

Someone you wouldn’t expect to see in a light-hearted romantic comedy: Juliette Binoche. (Unless Dan in Real Life counts.)

But the actress is starring alongside Clive Owen in Fred Schepisi’s Words and Pictures, which casts the duo as dueling prep school teachers. He’s a writer; she’s a painter. They may both have issues in their personal lives, but their combative relationship inspires creative greatness…when they aren’t competing for students. Will they eventually fall for one another?

Sure, it sounds pretty predictable — but this cute trailer shows that it could be pretty enjoyable as well. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

Clive Owen, Juliette Binoche cozy up in 'Words and Pictures' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Words and Pictures attempts to settle the debate once and for all: Is a picture really worth a thousand words?

Jack Marcus (Clive Owen) is a talented writer and Dina Delsanto (Juliette Binoche) a respected painter. Both are teachers at a prep school where their students are involved in an ongoing debate — which is superior, words or pictures? The two teachers find their personalities and personal preferences clashing, leading to a rivalry and, then, to romance.

EW has exclusive images from the romantic comedy, which was added to the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival lineup today. Below, see more glimpses of Jack and Dina’s emotional, intellectual love story, directed by Fred Schepisi and penned by Gerald Di Pego.

Cannes: A fake crowd-pleaser from Stephen Frears and a true one -- surprise -- from Abbas Kiarostami

tamara-drewe-movieEvery movie I’ve seen at Cannes this year — including Mike Leigh’s Another Year, which is almost universally admired — has been met, at best, with polite applause. That is, until I saw Tamara Drewe, Stephen Frears’ rotely cheeky, Anglo-plastic, eagerly innocuous adultery comedy. At the end of the screening in the Grand Théâtre Lumiére (I was seated in the huge, dramatically sloping balcony), the crowd around me erupted into applause, and then started to clap along with the cheesy-catchy rock song that played over the closing credits. I no longer felt like I was at Cannes; I felt like I was in the Catskills. Why the ovation? Tamara Drewe is this festival’s equivalent of a Sundance crowd-pleaser: a movie that makes a few quirky nods towards artistry, but is really, at heart, a mediocre television show, full of glib characters who don’t ring true. Plainly, the longing for this sort of movie is now an international phenomenon. READ FULL STORY
