For those seeking adrenaline rushes, jaw-dropping visual extravaganzas, etc., etc....... you might as well look elsewhere. "Evelyn" is a very moving, stirring little film, but probably only for those who are willing to settle into its gentle, intimate little reality. Of course, part of the fun in experiencing this true story lies in the discovery of how the struggles of its characters ultimately brought about major legal and social change in Ireland where it all takes place. It might be noted that all those who enjoy films featuring a rich sense of Irish life and culture, should take great delight in this offering.
