The hit musical based on the life of Eva Perón (Evita Duarte), a B-picture Argentinian actress who eventually became the wife of Argentinian president Juan Domingo Perón, and the most beloved and hated woman in Argentina.
High-flying, adored! The film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical depicting the infamous real-life story of Eva "Evita" Duarte de Peron, the wife of President Juan Peron, who rose from poverty to become the most famous Argentine woman in history. Her huge political influence and constant charity works earned her scorn and fear from the military and upper classes but adoration and love from the workers and descamisados. Evita's legendary life is displayed before your eyes as the most hated and most beloved woman in Argentina.Written by

After Evita & Juan Peron are married they walk outside the church and there is an army of well wishers and photographers who snap their picture. In real life Evita and Juan were married with the most absolute secrecy with the only guests being Evita's mother and one of Peron's ministers. Certainly no photographs were taken at the event.

Not being a really big fan of musicals, I was mostly just curious about the life of this interesting woman and how she obtained the power she had. I can't say it was extremely informative as it was focused more on the production and the musical side. It was probably Madonna's best acting performance though.
Evita is the true story of Eva Peron, who was a small town girl that first became a singer/actress, then the wife of an Argentinian president. She was a divisive person as most people apparently either love or hate her.
