Driven by Isabel Coixet's visually assured and deeply observant direction, Elegy charts the passionate relationship between a celebrated New York college professor, David Kepesh (Ben Kingsley) and a young Cuban-born woman, Consuela Castillo (Penélope Cruz) whose beauty both ravishes and destabilises him. As their intimate connection transforms them - more than either could imagine - a charged sexual contest evolves into an indelible love story. With humanistic warmth, wry wit and erotic intensity Elegy explores the power of beauty to blind, to reveal and transform.
