The movie Evelyn is based on true events & set in 1950's Ireland.
It charts the struggle of Desmond Doyle - played by Pierce Brosnan - to regain custody of his daughter Evelyn & 2 young sons. They were assigned by the courts to separate orphanages, after his wife left him for another man. Doyle was deemed an unfit parent, due to unemployment & fondness for the few jars (of Guinness).

Recruiting the services of a pro-bono legal team he began a legal challenge to the law which deprived him of his children. The resuting judgement delivered by Ireland's Supreme court in 1953 was a legal landmark. It changed the lives of many single parents in Ireland whose children had been forcibly placed in orphanages & institutions by the State.
