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.
