Unles you've already seen the 2002 film, Evelyn - and even if you have - consider renting it.

Set in Ireland in 1953, Desmond Doyle (Pierce Brosnan) plays a father determined to back his daughter (Evelyn) and two sons taken The Catholic Church and the Irish courts after their mother deserts the family. The children suffer at the hands of the punitive Nuns while Desmond battles an impossible case through to the Supreme Court.

You will love the court having to decide on the constitutional and God-given right of a parent!!

Desmond's love interest is played by Julianna Marguiles.

Is this a new movie? Never heard of it...but yes of course I'll Netflix it and watch. I learn a lot of interesting stuff at your blog, Mirah.

2002. Also recently saw The Royal Tanenbaum's for the second time. It is about a very dysfunctional family, including brother and adopted sister who love one in in love.
