The celebrated musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice is stunningly captured on film by Alan Parker (`The Commitments`, `Angel Heart`, `Mississippi Burning`). The story of Evita, told by Che (Antonio Banderas), Eva Peron (Madonna) was born the illegitimate daughter of a penniless farmer.
Determined to make it to the top, Eva attaches herself to a popular tango singer Agustin (Jimmy Nail) in the big city. Eva becomes a radio and film actress, moving in influential circles within Buenos Aires society. But when she becomes involved with rising politician Juan Peron (Jonathan Pryce), the establishment disapprove and he is arrested.
Eva fights on for freedom, both for her husband and the oppressed masses. Peron is freed by the people, the couple marry and Peron is elected president. But Eva`s greatest battle is yet to come.
