Review
Based on Philip Roth's short novel, 'The Dying Animal', 'Elegy' is a deeply affecting drama about the power of passion to blur the lines between love and obsession. David Kepesh (Ben Kingsley) is a middle-aged college professor who lives a life of "emancipated manhood". That is, until one of his students, the beautiful Consuela Castillo (Penelope Cruz), catches his eye and immediately he is consumed by passion. Stellar performances from Kingsley, Cruz, Hopper and Clarkson.
