A very good musical based on the life of Evita Peron, glamorous and beloved by the people wife of Argentine fascist Juan Peron. 

My wife and I really liked this film.  It's a very interesting movie about the social and political rise of Eva Peron, who backed her fascist husband Peron.  Madonna was very good in the role and the music is great.   It gives the viewer a good idea of what was the motivation of Eva that helped her rise to the top.
