Elegy 2008 108 R 3.0 out of 5 ducks
Literature professor David is getting old. He becomes smitten with Consuela, a 24-year-old student in one of his courses, and after the class is over and grades are out, chats her up and takes her to the theatre. His seemingly only friend George cautions him in the pursuit, openly sharing his theory that men rarely see past the beautiful facade of a beautiful woman, and that David is similarly afflicted. The affair runs its course over 18 months or so, interfering even with David's 20-year no-strings fling with Carolyn, but it does little to dampen the already poor relationship with David's oncologist son Ken (who's still bitter that dad left mom 35 years ago). David begs out of every encounter with Consuela, and she breaks up with him. He copes poorly, George all but orders him to eat, but soon after George collapses at a seminar and dies soon after. Consuela re-emerges, meeting David and confiding she has breast cancer; she's in town for surgery in two weeks, and asks him to photograph her topless (he does amateur photography, and she seems to want to remember herself as she was before the cancer). The surgery date is suddenly moved forward to the next day (David's son tells him that's surely not a good sign). David and Consuela speak after the surgery, and they removed the entire breast. David tries to express he'll always be here for her, and she tells him she'll miss him. We close with the David and Consuela on the beach, walking, but given the distance it's unclear if it's a memory of their earlier beach trip and photo day, or after the surgery. Moving film reel
