Eva Peron is the true story of an Argentinian political icon and the inspiration behind the hit musical Evita.

Forget what you think you know about Eva Peron. Juan Carols Desanzo’s sweeping biopic reinvents the popular image of Evita, the populist Argentinean icon, into an authentically human figure.

Eva Peron follows a rise to fame and power. From the depths of a struggling career as an actress, Peron became First Lady of Argentina and her work on behalf of laborers left an unquestionable impact on history before her tragically young death. Profoundly stirring yet deeply human, this biography of Evita presents the true life behind a modern legend.
