Released: August 8th Genre: Drama Rating: 15 Trailer: Click here The Film - Driven by Isabel Coixet's visually assured and deeply observant direction, Elegy charts the passionate relationship between a celebrated college professor and a young woman whose beauty both ravishes and destabilizes 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 to transform. Starring Oscar-nominee Penélope Cruz and Academy Award-winner Ben Kingsley, with extraordinary supporting performances from Dennis Hopper, Patricia Clarkson and Peter Sarsgaard, Elegy is based on Pulitzer Prize-winner Philip Roth's short novel The Dying Animal. The Verdict - Beautiful women, are invisible. Were so dazzled by the outside, that we never make inside. I really think the blurb above speaks far more affectionately and intimately about this film then i will ever be able to express towards how good i think Elegy surprisingly looks. The couple of Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz seem to have ignited a spark between themselves in this tender and overbearingly true to life story of an older man falling for a younger women; that has been conceived through a total disregard for the laws of attraction. Their chemistry just seems to radiate off of the screen. Dennis Hopper's supporting role looks to serve well as Ben Kingsley's closet confidante, often there to give Kingsley's character a rather un welcomed wake up call. Though these reality checks often seem fall on deaf ears. I'm not really one to opt for these kinda of mushy romantic tales, but lately there's been some great romantic dramas coming out. I also mark out, hard, for Peter Sarsgaard (Garden State ) so i look forward to seeing how his role fits into all of this.
