Sunday 8.30pm, Masterpiece (M) ★★★
If you suspect an Isabel Coixet film based on a Philip Roth novella called The Dying Animal might be a bit heavy, you’re probably right. Elegy was never going to be a date movie. On the positive side you get intimate performances from Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz. Kingsley is an academic whose affairs with much younger students remain casual until he meets Consuela ( Cruz).
