Jack Marcus (Owen), a charismatic writer/poet, and Dina Delsanto (Binoche), an enigmatic, well-respected painter, meet each other as teachers at a tiny New England prep school. As Jack’s extroverted wit clashes with Dina’s intensely private nature, mutual dislike turns to rivalry, and rivalry turns to powerful attraction. As they supervise a spirited ongoing debate between their students as to whether or not a picture (her forte) really is worth a thousand words (his domain), Dina falls for Jack’s roguish charms and he gets one last chance to redeem a life derailed.
