English Summary:

Elegy is a 2008 American romantic drama film directed by Isabel Coixet. Its screenplay is adapted by Nicholas Meyer from the 2001 novel The Dying Animal by Philip Roth. The film stars Penélope Cruz, Ben Kingsley, and Dennis Hopper, and features Patricia Clarkson and Peter Sarsgaard in supporting roles. The film was set in New York City but was shot in Vancouver.

 

David Kepesh is a cultural critic and professor, in a state of 'emancipated manhood': His relationships with women are usually casual, brief and sexual in nature. Previously married, he has a son who has never forgiven him for leaving his mother. His friend, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet George O'Hearn, suggests that he "bifurcate" his life: have conversations and enjoy art with a wife, and "keep the sex just for sex". David is also in a casual 20-year relationship with Caroline, another former student.

 

He encounters Consuela Castillo, a beautiful and confident student who attends one of his lectures. She captures his attention like no other woman, and they begin a serious relationship. George advises him to leave her before she leaves him, but David cannot bring himself to give her up. They are a couple for a year and a half, during which he continues to sleep with Caroline; neither woman knows of the other's existence.

 

Hungarian Summary:

David Kepesh művészeti kritikus és egyetemi tanár, aki túl van már élete java részén. Mindig arra törekedett, hogy megtartsa kényelmes, érzelmektől mentes agglegény életét. Ez eddig sikerült is neki, most azonban egy fiatal és tehetséges kubai lány, Consuela Castillo a tanítványává válik, és gyökeresen felborítja mindennapjait. Hamarosan arra ébred, hogy a magánál jóval fiatalabb lány soha nem tapasztalt érzéseket vált ki belőle.
