evitaA poor Argentine girl goes to Buenos Aires, becomes a model and an actress and eventually marries President Juan Per√≥n (Jonathan Pryce).¬†The focus may lie on the controversial character Evita who was loved by many Argentineans, but taking the real-life turmoil of the time and making it the stuff of Broadway entertainment makes one feel a little uneasy. It is a grand-looking film with a fine cast and engaging songs; Madonna relishes the limelight and Antonio Banderas works well as the voice of reason… but the narrative is a bit jumbled and drawn-out.

1996-U.S. 134 min. Color. Widescreen.¬†Directed by¬†Alan Parker.¬†Screenplay:¬†Alan Parker, Oliver Stone.¬†Cinematography:¬†Darius Khondji.¬†Songs:¬†Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice (‚ÄĚDon‚Äôt Cry For Me Argentina‚ÄĚ, ‚ÄĚYou Must Love Me‚ÄĚ).¬†Cast:¬†Madonna (Eva Per√≥n), Antonio Banderas (Ch√©), Jonathan Pryce (Juan Per√≥n), Jimmy Nail.

Trivia: Madonna changed costumes 85 times. Oliver Stone allegedly intended to direct the film himself, and so did Ken Russell at one point; Michelle Pfeiffer was allegedly considered for the part of Eva.

Oscar:¬†Best Original Song (‚ÄĚYou Must Love Me‚ÄĚ).¬†Golden Globes:¬†Best Motion Picture (Comedy/Musical), Actress (Madonna), Original Song (‚ÄúYou Must Love Me‚ÄĚ).
