Kawase Naomi's _Sharasoujyu_ has an important scene involving calligraphy--it's brief but central.

Well, since others have already brought up anime (I wasn't going to be the first to do it again), there was recently a one-episode TV special broadcast called "Shoka" (書家). 

I haven't seen it yet, but here's the plot synopsis:
"In the time of the shoganate someone is causing trouble. The city is being attacked by giant creatures and the shoganate's forces are not up to the task. It is the work of a calligrapher, someone who can bring creatures to life from kanji and artwork, and it is up to the art clan to put a stop to this rampage. The clan sends three of its best warriors, each with their own art combat specialty which will come in handy as the warriors find that the calligrapher is someone they know, someone with a grudge and he has monstrous plans for vengeance."
