Elegy 2008

description written by member Zara:

Cultural critic David Kepesh (Ben Kingsley) sits comfortably in his ivory tower, divorced from any romantic or familial entanglements, that is, until a striking 24-year-old daughter (PenÚlope Cruz) of Cuban exiles reawakens his sense of sexual excitement.

Elegy Movie Review by Jarrod (8/10/2008)

'Elegy' is an adaptation of Philip Roth's novel The Dying Animal, which is a sad reflection on how a person's self-imposed barriers can sabotage his or her efforts to find true happiness. Ben Kingsley gives a masterful performance, possibly his best since House of Sand and Fog, as David Kepesh, a college professor who has...
