Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Velez
Directed by Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy), Evelyn tells the true story of Desmond Doyle (Pierce Brosnan), a father who fought a prolonged and ultimately successful custody battle with both the Irish government and the Catholic Church. Set in Ireland in 1953, the film continues Beresford's partnership with composer Stephen Endelman, which began with 2001's Bride of the Wind. The initial tone, however, is set by one of Ireland's great musical exports, singer-songwriter Van Morrison, who contributes the bluesy new song, "Sitting on Top of the World." That song segues into Endelman's lovely guitar interlude "Opening Credits," which is followed by "Mom Leaves on St. ...

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Velez
Directed by Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy), Evelyn tells the true story of Desmond Doyle (Pierce Brosnan), a father who fought a prolonged and ultimately successful custody battle with both the Irish government and the Catholic Church. Set in Ireland in 1953, the film continues Beresford's partnership with composer Stephen Endelman, which began with 2001's Bride of the Wind. The initial tone, however, is set by one of Ireland's great musical exports, singer-songwriter Van Morrison, who contributes the bluesy new song, "Sitting on Top of the World." That song segues into Endelman's lovely guitar interlude "Opening Credits," which is followed by "Mom Leaves on St. Stephen's Day," the first of several sweet, melancholy melodies carried by guitar and fiddle. Also echoing the film's Irish spirit is the merry, fiddle- and flute-accented passage "The Nuns," one of the several toe-tapping jigs. Three more vocal songs balance Endelman's quietly dramatic score -- two unexpectedly charming traditional tunes delivered by erstwhile 007 Brosnan and one from Norway's "Goddess of Music," Sissel (Endelman's own "Angel Rays"). But overall, it's the composer's lovely and somber melodies -- whether expressed with a full orchestra on "Desmond Loses" or as a rousing dance number on "Jig Two" -- that evoke the film's warm Irish spirit.
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Actor Pierce Brosnan's production company is behind Evelyn, the "based-on-a-true-story" tale of a father in 1953 Ireland fighting for custody of his four children. Brosnan also stars, giving himself, as he puts it in his liner notes, "a chance to play emotional beats that I felt had been lacking from my work." Guess the James Bond movies only give him a chance to play action beats. For the low-key, heart-tugging film, Brosnan brought in composer Stephen Endelman, who contributes a score full of Irish folk music and calm orchestral cues. The soundtrack album is bookended with vocal tracks, starting with a newly written Van Morrison song with a venerable title "Sitting on Top of the World" that is in his typical ballad style, but no less appealing for that, and ending with Norwegian singer Sissel's attractive "Angel Rays." Four tracks are actually played by the Irish group the Grogan Family, and two of those feature vocals by Brosnan, who, from the sound of it, is unlikely to branch out into a singing career anytime soon, but seems to enjoy his chance to play musical beats, too.
