(Ben kingsley) is David Kepesh a university Literature, a sensitive soul, with affinities to music and poetry, and American hedonism. Out of the blues of his reserved life appeared a young seductive Cuban, Consuela Castillo (Penelope Cruz). What starts as simple temptation, and attraction soon starts developing into something deeper, and more meaningful. She wants commitment; she wants a clear plan, with a future. He is torn between so many emotions.

Not to mention, the clear objections of his friends and family, more specifically his son.

A gripping human drama of the heart; is there an age for love. Or at a certain age we are supposed to sit and reminiscent about those emotions. Is it time for an Elegy?
