Ebert & Roeper At The Movies: (Evelyn reviewed, 2 Thumbs Up) weekend of  Dec 7/8; syndicated.  Their audio review can be found here. Ebert & Roeper At The Movies: Memo To the Academy : Roeper recommends Pierce Brosnan for the Best Actor category in the January 11/12th weekend edition. 

Excerpts:

Roeper: Director Bruce Beresford's movie has as much heart and is more inspirational than just about anything I've seen this year.  I loved this movie. ... Though it's called Evelyn and the little girl who plays her is wonderful, this is Pierce Brosnan's movie for his nomination worthy performance as Desmond Doyle. 

Ebert: It's a lovely film.


Rex Reed, The New York Observer : ...lovely, inspired film by celebrated director Bruce Beresford... Brosnan gives the performance of his life. The four-hankie emotion in Evelyn is inescapable, but so is the impact of a film that is profound, informed, honest and utterly, charmingly lacking in pretense. 

Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune : At the storm center, Brosnan plays Doyle with a different kind of heroism than he invests in the cool, witty brutality of his James Bond. Doyle is a man of rough-hewn Dublin pluck and fatherly courage... He gives Doyle a fine mix of outward braggadocio and deep gentleness.

Desson Howe, Washington Post:   Pierce Brosnan is a quiet charm as Desmond Doyle... . And it's nice to see [him] winning the day with an Irish (not English) accent and without James Bond gadgetry. 

Eleanor Ringle Gillespie, Atlanta Journal Constitution: The film has a sturdy good heart and a dynamite cast who delight in doing a melodramatic tear-jerker to the very best of their abilities ... Brosnan is a classically trained actor with a considerable range. He's irresistible here, and quite touching as an essentially decent underdog, who's not above using a little Irish charm to get what he wants. 

Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee: It has a certain lightness and a sense of humor, epitomized by Brosnan's sturdy, eye-twinkling performance. This is a nice change from his work as 007, an indication of his range and talent - and his hand-picked, high-powered supporting cast work hard never to weigh down a film that's essentially small and delicate.

Cynthia Grenier, World Net Daily: Here at last we have a movie for the Christmas season that is genuinely a family film, a heartwarming work with a strong sense of morality and justice. 


Pierce Brosnan and Sophie Vavasseur were mentioned in Joel Siegel's Holiday Film Preview/Academy Forecast story airing on Good Morning America on Friday, November 29th. Jeffrey Lyons names Evelyn as one of the Top Movies Of 2002
