Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "The storytelling, as directed by Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy), is simple and relaxed -- an Irish sweater of a production. The surprises to be had, then (smelling ever so slightly of oiled wool and pub fumes), lie with the cast of twinkling gents assembled to enact their ordained roles.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "Evelyn is a shamelessly uplifting motion picture that attains its feel-good status by forging a deep emotional connection between the undertrodden protagonist and the audience.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "Evelyn is directed by Bruce Beresford, who may have chosen the straightforward classic style as a deliberate decision: It signals us that the movie will not be tarted up with modern touches, spring any illogical surprises, or ask for other than genuine emotions.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Average "While Brosnan, an Irishman by birth, lays it on bit thick, his performance is surprisingly effective. Bruce Bereford makes the best of a workmanlike script, the children — particularly young Vavasseur — are undeniably adorable, and there's a nice turn by Alan Bates as a boozy ex-rugby hero who also happens to be an expert on Irish family law.''

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Being a limited release film, there wasn't a big turn out at the theater, but it's easy to see that those who saw "Evelyn" were glad they did. With most rating it "Excellent" and not a single low review I certainly have no problem recommending "Evelyn."

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Sorry, we were not given an advance screening of this movie.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Based on true events, Evelyn tells the inspiring story of real-life hero Desmond Doyle (Pierce Brosnan) and his young children, Evelyn (Sophie Vavasseur), Maurice, and Dermot. Abandoned by his wife, Doyle does his best to make it as a single dad, raising his kids alone in Ireland in 1953. Their life isn't easy – but above all else in the world, Doyle loves his children. Unfortunately, when his wife's mother reports her daughter's abandonment to the authorities, the power of the Church and the Irish courts take his children away and put them in orphanages. Doyle is devastated.

Vowing to reunite his family, he enlists the help of new friend Bernadette Beattie (Julianna Margulies), her solicitor brother Michael (Stephen Rea), their American lawyer friend Nick (Aidan Quinn), and Nick's mentor Tom Connolly (Alan Bates). Together they attempt to do what has never been done before – challenge a law before the Irish Supreme Court. Doyle's fight to keep his family intact becomes an uplifting testament to the strength of a father's love and the power of the human spirit.
