Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 12/13/2002
"...EVELYN has a breeziness of spirit..."
Hollywood Reporter - 09/10/2002
"...It's done with a lot of careful period attention as well as some very welcome wit..."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/10/2003
"...The storytelling, as directed by Bruce Beresford, is simple and relaxed -- an Irish sweater of a production. The surprises to be had, then, lie with the cast of twinkling gents assembled to enact their ordained roles..."

Product Description:

Pierce Brosnan stars as Desmond Doyle, an Irishman whose troubles mount after his philandering wife runs away with another man. As a single, unemployed father with a penchant for Dublin's pubs, Doyle is deemed an unfit parent, and his daughter and two younger sons are placed in orphanages. Despite his problems, Doyle is an utterly devoted dad and decides to fight for custody of his children and his right to raise them alone. Doyle's crack pro bono legal team--played by Stephen Rea, Aidan Quinn, and Alan Bates--takes his case all the way to the Irish Supreme Court in 1953, challenging the church and courts. Typically dapper Brosnan is exceedingly likable as down-on-his-luck Doyle, a common man who becomes a real-life hero, in this period piece. Sophie Vavasseur is a scene-stealer as Evelyn, Doyle's oldest child and the film's namesake, and Julianna Margulies adopts a believable accent as the barmaid who inspires Doyle to clean up his act if he wants his family back. Based on the true story of a court decision that changed the lives of many Irish families, EVELYN is directed by Bruce Beresford (TENDER MERCIES, DRIVING MISS DAISY).
