A contemporary opera that follows the rise and demise of real life figure, low-born Eva Peron (Madonna) as seen through the eyes of peasant Che (Antonio Banderas). Beginning at Eva's funeral, the movie backtracks over her rise to power, her influence as an inspirational figurehead for the peasants of Argentina and her gradual weakening/illness/death through a variety of songs of different styles.
Trivia: Madonna holds the record for the most number of costume changes in a film. The record was previously held by Elizabeth Taylor for the 1963 film Cleopatra (65 costume changes). In Evita, Madonna changed costumes 85 times (which included 39 hats, 45 pairs of shoes and 56 pairs of earrings).Jedd Jong
