Evelyn Movie Synopsis
Based on true events, this is the inspiring story of real-life hero Desmond Doyle and his young children, Evelyn, Maurice
and Dermot. Struggling to raise his kids alone in Ireland in 1953, Doyle is devastated when the power of the Church and
the Irish courts take his children away and put them in orphanages. Vowing to reunite his family, he enlists the help
of his friends and 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 a father's love and the power of the human
very endearing, enjoyable movie. I was shocked as to how well Pierce Bronson acted in this movie - never expected that.
VERY TOUCHING AND HEART WARMING STORY, WE NEED THIS FOR ALL THE VIOLENCE GOING ON ON TV, MOVIES, EVERYWHERE.
