While the movies about Evita created an interesting portrait of her exciting life, The A&E Biography offered a more appealing representation of Evita Peron. The biography gave both the perspectives on how Evita was both good and bad, while the movie seemed to portray only Evita’s generous actions to Argentinean people.
