Charismatic professor DAVID KEPESH (Ben
Kingsley) glories in the pursuit of adventurous female
students but never lets any woman get too close. When
gorgeous CONSUELA CASTILLO (Penélope Cruz) enters his
classroom, however, his protective veneer dissolves. Her
raven-haired beauty both captivates and unsettles him.
Even if Kepesh declares her body a perfect work of art,
Consuela is more than an object of desire. She has a strong
sense of herself and an emotional intensity that challenges
his preconceptions. Kepesh’s need for Consuela becomes an

Shattered, Kepesh faces up to the ravages of time, immersing
himself in work and confronting the loss of old friends.
Then, two years later, Consuela comes back into his
life—with an urgent, desperate request that will change
