Rent Evita on DVD


1996 Rated PG 2hr 15m

It's easy to see Adolf Hitler's long shadow hanging over this true story about power and fame. In 1930s Argentina, small-town girl Evita (Madonna) enters show business, becomes a star and ends up married to President Juan Perón (Jonathan Pryce). Her position as the nation's most beloved woman makes her a martyr upon her death. The enigmatic Ché (Antonio Banderas) narrates the story.
