Tagline: The story of a father's love that changed a nation

Plot: 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.
