Elegy /el-i-ji/ n a sad poem, especially for someone who has died.

The film Elegy is a well acted, poetic film that mourns the death of callous relationships and a cavalier attitude toward love. A college professor who left his wife and son, thinking he was not cut out for marriage, takes up with students on a regular basis. The film explores two of these relationships. Their intersection, becomes the professor's undoing. He becomes a caring, mature individual, much to his confusion. The performances are excellent, a dramatic piece I enjoyed.

I'm glad you saw this one & reviewed it as I've been strongly considering it.

It's showing at one theater in town, and I'm going to try to make it up there next weekend.
